Sierra Leone Crashes Out of Nations Cup as Mauritania Handles Leone Stars Shocking Defeat

Les Mourabitones of Mauritania beat Leone Stars 2-0 to eliminate them from the African Nations Cup Championship (CHAN) 4-1 on aggregate.

Sierra Leone (Pictured in action) had lost the first leg 2-1 last weekend to the Mourabitounes in the competition which is reserved for internationals who play in their own domestic leagues.

Frenchman Corentin Martins’s side took a two-goal lead by the 36th-minute mark with goals from Yalli Mohamed Dellahi and Boubacar Beyguily in the 35 ft and 36th minutes respectively.

But the host, who were playing the return of their second leg qualifying round at the Olympic Stadium in Nouakchott, Mauritania due to the Ebola virus which is still affecting Sierra Leone, responded immediately after the break but was ruled out for offside.

Sierra Leone pushes forward as they try to get back into the game, but the visitors who are playing at home nullified all threats from their opponent.

The scoreline remained unchanged until the final whistle.

Mauritania will play next the aggregate winner between Mali and Guinea Bissau.
