Sierra Leone & Lupa Roma striker Alieu Sesay has told this press that he is looking forward to wear his country`s colour in the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.


The 20-year-old striker thinks he is having his best but however said he is still looking forward to take his side to another level this season`s competition. Sesay is currently on loan to Seria D Anziolavinio FC having helped Lupa Roma to win the Eccellenza Lazio B division play-off title to gained promotion.


In the season 2013-14 the club moved to Rome changing its name to A.S.D. Lupa Roma and playing the home matches in nearby Fiumicino.

He said: “I am in a right space at the moment, I have not been happier than I am right now,” Sesay told this press. "I think the little contribution I’ve made at the club so far, has been good and that is why I am looking forward to represent my country.
“The hardest thing now is to fight and convince the coach that I can offer something different to the team.


"I want to take the first step by convincing the coach and I will make sure i seize that opportunity when the needs arise.
“The group stage qualifier is very important and I am looking forward to be part of the squad.


“We`ve a young squad and I believe with the support from the fans we will surely fulfill their dream of reaching the African Cup of Nations come 2015”. Sierra Leone are in Group G alongside Ivory, Cameroon and DR Congo.
