Seychelles in training session
Sierra Leone’s opponent in second rounds of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Tournament in Morocco, Seychelles, will face Uganda in a friendly clash a week before their away encounter in Freetown.
The Leone Stars will host the Pirates at the Siaka Steven Stadium on Saturday July 19th before traveling to Victoria for the return leg match at the Stade Linité Stadium in a fortnight.
According to Kawowo Sports, it was Seychelles that requested the warm-up match against Uganda who themselves will be facing Mauritania after Equatorial Guinea were disqualified by the tournament organizing committee for fielding an ineligible player.
"Seychelles requested and we thought it would be another preparatory opportunity for the team", Ahmed Hussein said.
Meanwhile it is also reported that Seychelles has announced plans to set up a training camp in Kampala, Uganda before and after the friendly match as they seek a first Nations Cup spot in over 31years.
