“Without a doubt playing against Nigeria will be my first proper match for Sierra Leone. Something I am looking forward to, but both Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau are no easy games,” Bakayoko told

“God willing we can go out there and showcase ourselves against a tough Nigeria side. Helping Sierra Eone reach the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast 2023 will be massive, personally for me, my country, and all of us players working so hard to give our best.

“Making the next African Cup of Nations is something as a player i want to be part of and will be unbelievable for me to play in the Ivory Coast for the first time.
