Sesay Set For Sierra Leone Debut

Defender David Sesay is expected to finally commit his international future to Sierra Leone with a debut for the country’s senior men national team on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old, who plays for English National League side Barnet, is also eligible to represent Kenya.

But he has joined up with Sierra Leone’s squad in Rabat for the upcoming three friendlies against South Sudan, Gambia and Morocco.

He is expected to be handed starting place in what will be his first formal appearance for the country.

Sierra Leone is using the three matches set for Wednesday, Saturday and next Tuesday as part of preparations for 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

However, doubts remain over former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool defender Steven Caulker, as he has not been cleared by FIFA.

The 29-year-old star is currently turning for Gaziantep on loan from their Turkish rivals Fenerbahce.

He won a single cap for England in a 4-2 loss to Sweden in 2012 in a friendly match and also managed to get on the scoresheet.

Once cleared by the world football governing body, Caulker will be eligible to play for Sierra Leone at January’s Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.

Other new faces in Sierra Leone squad include Dutch-based Issa Kallon, Genoa forward Yayah Kallon and Greece-based Jonathan Morsay.
