2019 AFCON Qualifier: Sierra Leone’s Skipper Returns Against Ghana

By on

FC Zurich defender Umaru Bangura is available to lead Sierra Leone against Ghana for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier double header this month.

Bangura, 30, who scored one of the goals against Kenya in the qualifier opener in Freetown, missed Leone Stars defeat in Ethiopia.

He has played three times this season for the Zurich-based club since his recovery from injury including their Europa league 1-0 win over AÉK Lárnaka in Greece.

Another notable inclusion is Denmark-based forward Mustapha Bundu.

The graduate from Craig Bellamy’s academy is a potential debutant for Sierra Leone in Kumasi.

FC Riga midfielder George Davies also named in the 21-man squad after been snubbed for the tie against Ethiopia.

Ghana host Sierra Leone on 11 October at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi in the third round of the group stage qualifiers before travelling to Freetown to for the second leg contest four days later.

Coach Keister also handed a second call-up to Bristol City young goalkeeper Alhaji Sesay and Queens Park Rangers right-back Osman Kakay.

Sierra Leone began the qualifiers with victory over the Harambee Stars of Kenya before suffered a 1-0 defeat to Ethiopia last month.

The Black Stars defeat to Kenya means that all four teams in Group F have three points from two matches.
