In grand fashion Leone Stars celebrated my homecoming with a 1 – 0 win over Sihlangu Semnikati of Swaziland at the national stadium in Freetown this evening. This was the second leg of the first round of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers. The first leg of the match in Swaziland had ended in a draw. Umaru Bangura aka Zengaylay scored after a penalty won by Kei Kamara.
All I have to say is that my boys saw me on the pitch and they rose to the occasion. I love dem boys. Leggo Leone Stars!
