Deen-Conteh was first called-up to the Sierra Leone national team in March 2013 by former Swedish Coach Lars Olof Mattsson for the World Cup qualifying match against Tunisia, however, the former Ergotelis defender was unable to play after it was learnt that his Sierra Leonean passport had expired.
Two months later, the left-back was again invited by Irish Coach Johnny McKinstry for the Cape Verde match but he was again unable to make his debut after the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) did not seek clearance from FIFA having represented England at U-16, U-19 & U-20 levels.
The defender who few months back ended a frustrating 14 months’ spell at Port Vale is now set to make his debut for Sierra Leone under the Ghanaian tactician, Sellas Tetteh.
Serbia based striker, Mustapha ‘Haji’ Bangura and newly Latvia Virsliga heavyweights Riga FC recruit, John Kamara were also recalled to the squad.
Sierra Leone will first host Malawi in an international friendly match on March 22nd at the Siaka Steven Stadium in Freetown before traveling to Libreville for their first leg tie against The Panthers of Gabon on March 25 at the Franceville Stadium.
Three days later, two sides will again face each other again for the return leg tie at the Siaka Steven Stadium in Freetown.
