Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco, His Excellency Atumanni Dainkeh has called on the Leone Stars home-based squad to raise the country’s profile a notch higher by defeating the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde in the double-header slated for Sunday 24th and Wednesday 27th July 2022 at the Marrakech Grande Stade in Morocco.

H.E Atumanni made this patriotic plea during his visit to the Leone Stars’ Camp at the Kenzi Farah Hotel in Marrakech where he, together with Sierra Leone’s Deputy Minister of Finance II, Bockarie Kalokoh and the Embassy’s Head of Chancery, James Sylvanus Lebbie, officially welcomed the delegation to Morocco.

The President of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), Thomas Daddy Brima who doubles as the leader of delegation from Freetown, warmly received the Ambassador and delegation from the Sierra Leone Embassy in Morocco.

In his statement, Ambassador Atumanni Dainkeh expressed joy in playing host to the young and promising home based Sierra Leonean squad who are out there in a quest to fly the country’s flag.

He encouraged the players to do well not only for Sierra Leone but for themselves.

H.E Dainkeh admonished the squad to consider such representation as a given opportunity, more than ever, to excel and earn a professional career, as well as to properly raise their personal profiles, which he observed should be the wish of every player.

The SLFA General Secretary-Christopher Kamara thanked and appreciated the Ambassador and the Sierra Leone Mission in Morocco for visiting the team, adding that the presence of the statesmen was very inspiring not just to the players but to the entire membership of the Sierra Leonean delegation.

In another development, the sport bodies including CAF, SLFA and FCF have agreed to reschedule the kick off tìme of both matches slated for Sunday 24 and Wednesday 27 July to be moved from 16:00 GMT to 19:00 GMT which is 4 and 7 pm in Morocco tìme and 3 and 6 pm in Sierra Leone.

This was as a result of a proposal submitted by CAF based on the prevailing hot weather condition in Morocco during the daytime.
