Seeking to pick to successive victories for the first time since March 2022, Sierra Leone take on Burkina Faso at the Stade du 26 Mars in Group A of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers on Monday.

The Stallions, who have lost each of their last four matches since January, will head into the game looking to stop the rot and move into second place in the group standings.

Burkina Faso were denied consecutive wins in the World Cup qualifiers as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against seven-time African champions Egypt at the Cairo International Stadium on Thursday.

Burkina Faso had kicked off their World Cup qualifying journey with a 1-1 draw against Guinea-Bissau on November 17, four days before cruising to a 3-0 victory over Ethiopia at the Stade El Abdi.

Sierra Leone, on the other hand, picked up their first win in the qualifiers in midweek when they edged out Djibouti 2-1 when the two nations squared off at the Stade El Abdi.

After taking the lead inside the opening 12 minutes courtesy of Curtis Davies, Gabriel Dadzie converted his 35th-minute penalty to draw Djibouti level but Augustus Kargbo netted six minutes into the second half to hand the hosts a much-needed victory.

Prior to that, Amidu Karim’s men were on a seven-match winless run across all competitions, losing five and claiming two draws while conceding 16 goals and scoring six since June 2023.

Having picked up just one point from their opening two matches in Group A, Wednesday’s victory has seen Sierra Leone move to fourth place in the group standings, only behind third-placed Burkina Faso on goal difference.
