Buya Turay injured in Lesotho match

Sierra Leone have travelled to Cotonou for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin in Cotonou on Sunday without striker Mohamed Buya Turay.

The 24-year-old who recently won the Swedish league with Djurgarden, will miss the group L encounter because of a toe injury.

Turay only played the last 34 minutes of the Leone Stars’ home 1-1 draw with Lesotho three days ago because he arrived in Freetown from Sweden the night before the match.

He also finished as the Swedish top flight’s highest goal scorer with 15 goals. (By Mohamed Fajah Barrie)
