As the match approaches, all eyes will be on Sierra Leone as they strive to defy the odds and achieve a significant result against the group leaders.Notably absent from the provisional list is Jonathan Morsay, the Panaitolikos attacker who found the net in the 2-1 defeat against Nigeria in Abuja last year.
