Kei Kamara and Sierra Leone have advanced to the group stage of qualifying for he 2015 African Cup of Nations. After winning their first leg at home against Seychellas 2-0, the team was traveling to Seychellas for the second leg, but was denied entry to the country because of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Because of their denial to enter the country, the Seychellas national team had to forfeit the game. Oddly enough, Kamara was already in Seychellas, flying directly there instead of meeting up with the team. Sierra Leone will now be grouped with Cameroon, the Ivory Coast, and the Congo with the top two advancing to the ACN. The third place team could advance if they are the best third place team of the eight groups.
