I feel blessed, proud and honored to have represented Sierra Leone at (AFCON) Africa cup of nations (football).

In every game season there are high times and low times. Sierra Leoneans thank you for sticking with us (the team) in victory and in defeat.

To our dear coach, thank you for showing us our potential to be great. Thank you for your rigid training and for continuously believing in us as a team.

To my dear teammates, I have always believed that our team is a force to reckon with. Our strength lies in our unparalleled teamwork and guts to keep fighting for victory

And to criticsI am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself.

Therefore, I am going to stop being my own critic. It’s high time that I accept all the great things about me
