Leone Stars players were pictured sitting and sleeping under a mango tree at the Sierra Leone-Guinea Border crossing point after they were refused entering to Guinea by the Guinean immigration officials for lack of COVID-19 test results.

They spent over six hours at the border. Authoritative sources have confirmed the COVID-19 results were to be available as soon as NaCOVERC validate them. Leone Stars are due to play Benin today Monday in Conakry to fight for the last qualifying place for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
