Leone Stars goal Keeper Christian Caulker calls for divine intervention
First choice goal keeper Christian Caulker (in photo) has called on all Sierra Leonean Muslims and Christians to pray for Leone Stars to get victory over their Tunisian counterparts on Saturday.
The 24-year old who has won so many caps believes prayers can help them get their needed result and qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations finals for the first time in 17 years.
“I’m a Christian and I believe in prayers. So I’m calling on my fellow Sierra Leonean brothers and sisters of the Muslim and Christian faiths to remember Leone Stars in their prayers,” Said Caulker in his room in El Mouradi Hotel.
He added: “With prayers, I’m sure we can make it to South Africa. I have confidence in our team and I pray that we approach the game with the right attitude and win.”
“I’m ready to give out my best, so too are the other players and all we need from our people back home are prayers.”
Defender Ishmael Koroma of FC Johansen who is a member of the Leone Stars team in Tunis also expressed the same sentiments.
Leone Stars need to win or at least get a 2-2 draw if they are to have any chance of eliminating the Tunisians in their own back yard and qualify for the finals to commence in three month time in South Africa.
The first leg in Freetown last month ended 2-2 with Leone Stars twice giving away their lead.
