The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) are still hopeful to use Accra, Ghana as their home ground to host DR Congo in their Group D encounter of the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Earlier last week it was reported that the Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) through its government had rejected the request made by SLFA and Sierra Leone government to play their qualifiers in Accra due to the current health emergencies following the Ebola outbreak in the country (Sierra Leone).
However, the SLFA scribe Chris Kamara said they still hope and will continue to push their Ghana options adding that they (SLFA) are yet to receive any other correspondence from the GFA that they are not ready to host Sierra Leone.
He said: “Withdrawing is not an option for us. His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma in a meeting with us authorized the ministry that we should find another option for our matches so we are working on this together with all authorities concern.”
“If Ghana proves otherwise, we will look at other options that we are presently in talks with including the CAF angle. We need our government to work with speed to get this done in communicating with other nations,” Kamara said.
Sierra Leone will face Ivory Coast on September 6th before hosting DR Congo on September 10th.
