Friskaviljor striker, Albert Kargbo, has been called-up by the Sierra Leone national team head coach, Jonathan McKinstry as a replacement for injured Transmere Rovers winger, Abdulai Bell-Baggie.

The 20-year-old striker received his second call-up to the 20-man squad mainly made up of overseas-based players.

Coach McKinstry, who is currently in the UK, and his players will travel directly from their destinations to Abidjan as Leone Stars face the Elephants of Ivory Coast on September 6 before taking on DR Congo four days later.

Kargbo’s invitation came after he continued to prove to be an outstanding striker in the Swedish third division league where he currently has scored 12 goals with five assists in only 14 games.
