Angry fans of Sierra Leone’s national football team have attacked a player’s house after he missed a decisive penalty.

Captain Umaru Bangura failed to convert a stoppage-time spot kick in front of a huge crowd on Sunday.

It meant Sierra Leone failed to get through to the next stage of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Liberia qualified, winning the tie 3-2 on aggregate. After the game fans pelted Bangura’s home with stones.

The windows and doors of his residence in the capital, Freetown, were left badly damaged. A song has even been released mocking his penalty miss.

Had Bangura scored, Sierra Leone would have levelled the two-legged tie 3-3 and gone through to the next stage on away goals.
