Sierra Leone’s striking sensation Ibrahim Kamara aka Bojo man has warned Saturday’s final opponents South Sudan that he is willing to do “everything” he can to win.
Head coach Yusuf Kamara and his players are on the search for Sierra Leone’s fifth success in this competition, and will be hoping to make amends for a disappointing outcome in the five previous tournaments having failed to reach the final.
The difference perhaps this season is Sierra Leone are now equipped with both young and experience players, with Ibrahim Kamara having recorded a staggering 5 goals in 7 appearances in this year’s tournament, complimented by a further 4 assists.
Speaking to this media ahead of the contest at the Western Sydney Wanderers stadium, Blacktown, Sierra Leone skipper Ibrahim admitted that he feels an extra responsibility to deliver when chances to score come his way, as he looks to deliver Sierra Leone 5th trophy since the inceprion of the Sydney-Africa Cup of Nations.
He said: “Of course I feel responsibility,” he told this media. “But I’m confident that we are a good team, and we have to perform at our best to be able to do this. One game left to create big history, and I will do everything I can to make that happen to grab my fourth gold medal having won the tournament twice with (Sierra Leone) and once with (Cape Verde)”
He continued: “All I care about is trying to win the last game of this year’s tournament against one of the best teams in the tournament. It would be amazing of course. To win the Sydney-Africa Cup OF Nation is a big dream, and I will do everything I can to make it happen, and hopefully we perform at our best and hopefully we win.”
“We have to be mentally and physically prepared ahead Saturday’s showdown against South Sudan. They have good players let’s how it goes as many people will write us off but in football any thing can happen”.
He however called on the Sierra Leone community in Sydney to come out in thousands to support the green, white and blue flags. “We are in the final and we need Sierra Leoneans to come around us to make this dream a reality. We have been there for them since the competition started, so let them be behind us on Saturday”.
