Coach of the Sierra Leone national football team John Keister has stated that his side is now under pressure to deliver results when they host Super Eagles on Tuesday, November 17.

The tactician has guided the his side to an historic comeback when they pulled four goals back to draw level 4-4, despite trailing 4-0 as early as the 29th minute during the first leg in Benin. Keister who was part of the Sierra Leonean team that defeated Nigeria 1-0 in Freetown back in 2001 has stated that his boys must now complement on their efforts following the draw. According to him, their performance in Nigeria was not a fluke and they are now under pressure to beat the three-time AFCON champions.

He said:

“We are looking forward to it. We are now under pressure because of the result we achieved in Nigeria and the onus is on us to prove it is not a fluke. “I think we gave them a lot of respect at the start, that’s why we conceded four goals, when we came out bolder, we scored ours. Now we have to come out and play on our home turf.”

Meanwhile, Nigeria will be without striker Victor Osimhen who has returned to his base in Italy after he suffered an injury during the first leg.
