Kwame Quee reduced the deficit to make it 4-1 before the end of first half.

Al Hadji Kamara restored the visitors belief with another goal in the 72nd minute.

Victor Osimhen was stretchered off after sustaining a wrist injury, while Leon Balogun was replaced by Semi Ajayi due to a back complaint.

Mustapha Bundu scored the third goal with ten minutes to go.

Kamara completed the remarkable comeback with an 86th minute goal to earn a valuable point for Sierra Leone.
