Leone Stars Coach, John Keister, has reacted to Bolton Wanderers Amadou Bakayoko’s first Goal. Keister believes Amadou Bakayoko’s  international career have been given a boost by his first goal, scored on Sunday against Liberia.

The Wanderers strikers  scored the only goal of the game  in Antalya as the Leone Stars  held  out for a 1-0 win,  bouncing back from a 3-0 defeat to Togo a  few days prior.

Bakayoko played 63 minutes, earning his  second cap, but will now have  got a new feel of the unique  tempo of African  Football, said his coach, and former Walsall Midfielder john Kiester

” I think it was a difficult game but we are both in the  same direction in the process of identifying players, he said of the Liberians.

He expresses happiness for the team and for  Amadou Bakayoko and stated that this will give him  confidence moving forward.

” Introducing some of these new lads around African Football temperament , how to cope with that , is never easy. However,  there are a lots of positive looking at the  future” he added.

Bakayoko was one of several debutants  in Friday’s game  against Togo, many of whom  were brought in from  English sides.

The country is currently  ranked  107th by FIFA and will soon learn their Schedule  for the 2023 AFCON  in the Ivory Coast, with Qualifiers taking  place up to September of this year.
