Leone Stars in better shape…Bittar

Leone Stars will engage Niger in a fascinating 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier fighting for a top spot in Group G, while the continent’s surprise giants are second in the pecking order behind South Africa.

“I spoke to a sport reporter Salif Basso who watched the Niger team that faced Morocco inside Stade de Marrakech in a friendly international when they lost 3-0 last month and he told me the Mena’s are technically sound but he said physically they are not in the best of shape since they defeated the former African Champions Egypt, while Sierra Leone on the other  hand knows this is it, no more dropping of points, despite losing to Nigeria in their own friendly but they were more a better physical side considering their squad for the Nigeria encounter was an under strength team,” Bittar said.
However, Bittar knows Leone Stars are physically ready for the tasks ahead, full of optimism and very energetic squad, a lot of pace in the midfield and attack, if only they can transform their club form to national level against Niger it will be difficult for the home side.

The soccer pundit stated again there is no room for excuses after full time; this is the first game in charge for the Swedish technician Mattsson who is already impressed with the Sierra Leone foreign player cooperation for the encounter.

Now is the time to use the right man in the right position. Bittar’s main concern is if Olof Mattsson will do his job without any interference, this is yet to be seen.
