Sierra Leone Sport: Suspension affects us, footballers – Umaru Bangura

Sierra Leone's captain, Umaru Bangura, said the FIFA suspension was affecting the footballers, stressing that they suffered the most, "said FC Zurich." It's not good for us. We feel disappointed because we know that it has a negative effect on our football career. "FIFA claimed that Sierra Leone would remain suspended until the end of the alleged corruption case against SLFA chief Isha Johansen and sister Chris Kamara. year-old, who made his international debut in 2006, was already in Freetown preparing for matches when he received news of the ban. "Some foreign players, including me, were already in the Freetown camp when I heard the sad news about suspension. We did not feel well, "he explained." Other players from abroad have been in different airports to fly to Freetown from their countries where club football plays. "Bangura, who lost his defeat in Ethiopia in September, called all parties involved to work to raise the suspension in time for the next qualifying against Kenya in Nairobi on November 17. "It is always a special feeling when playing for the national team. We hope the suspension will be lifted, "said Bangura, who had points in Norway and Belarus." If the suspension is not raised in time for the Kenyan game, it means we have no hope of qualifying for the Cameroon final. "This will put an end to the hopes of older players in the team ever to play in the Nations Cup final for these players now or never." Kenya surpasses the seven-point group in four matches, three points ahead of the second-largest Ethiopia. According to Abdul Kamara, a sports analyst, the suspension of the FIFA in Sierra Leone affects the final qualifiers of the African Cup last month against Ghana. The game was canceled after the FA of the country failed to obtain suspension of the suspension by FIFA. He also said that the Sierra Leone Group F contest with Kenya this month is highly questionable as the FIFA suspension from the Serb Leone Football Association (SLFA) remains in place.
