Makeni, SIERRA LEONE – Algerian Team-B on Saturday evening hammered a humiliating 0-3 defeat on the Sierra Leone senior National Men’s team “Leone Stars” at the Fujairah Club Stadium in Dubai.
The Leone Stars lost their grip of the match in the 57th minute and Algeria’s Shoaib Kdad took advantage to net the day’s opener.
His goal opened the flood gate as his teammates Ahmed Qandousi and Abdul Rahman Mezian increased the visitors lead to 3-0 after netting respectively in the 71st and 77th minute.
Host Sierra Leone could not reply the visitors and things became worse for them when their skipper Steven Roy Caulker was red-carded.
The result has been described by sports pundits and followers of the Sierra Leone senior team as “humiliating” advancing that “the local football federation-(SLFA) and their partners who’ve initiated the said match have just thrown the Nation’s pride on Algeria’s senior national team that was earned when they forced them to a barren draw at the delayed 2021-TotalEngergies AFCON to the drains.”
The defeat and widely talked about humiliation for the “Leone Stars” comes after the team was allegedly smuggled out with a bloated delegation of over 20 officials plus 23 players for two rumoured friendly matches with one being annulled. ARW/20/11/2022
