Who knew that a little draw in Egypt would do so much to boost and lift Sierra Leone’s national morale. I have never seen Sierra Leoneans unite as they did today behind the national football team. We underestimate the power of football. The people of Freetown forgot all their worries, and troubles and marched in thousands towards the national stadium to show their love and support for our beloved Leone Stars. At 2:00pm still 2hrs before the official kick off, all the stands were completely full. Everyone was so eager to get into the stadium that we forgot about black man time.
We may be a small country, and we may find ourselves at the bottom half of the human development index but the beauty of football is that, we too can be giants. Thank you to the giants of Leone Stars playing at home and abroad…You have given us all a reason to proudly represent the GREEN GREEN WHITE WHITE BLUE BLUE.
May Allah continue to bless and protect all of you as your head back to your respective teams.
Much Love and respect, from your once down, now resurrected spirit of your sweet mama Salone
