Sierra Leonean football fans have been excited by the news that former Premier League star Curtis Davies will be representing their country in the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers. The announcement was made by the national team’s head coach.
Despite being 38 years old, Davies is still actively involved in football and recently signed a one-year contract with Cheltenham Town. The club expressed their delight at securing the services of the experienced defender, who has had successful stints with clubs like Leicester City, West Bromwich Albion, and Hull City. Before joining Cheltenham, Davies spent six years at Derby County.
Davies’ football journey began with Luton Town before moving on to West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, and Leicester City. He later played for Birmingham City, where he spent two years alongside Wade Elliott, who is currently the manager of Cheltenham Town. One of the highlights of Davies’ career was scoring in the 2014 FA Cup Final while playing for Hull City. He joined Derby County in 2017 after leaving Hull.
Davies expressed his excitement about his latest move, stating, “It’s an exciting time for me. I never thought I’d be able to embrace a new challenge like this at my age. But I’m keen to achieve something special this year and I’ll give my best for Cheltenham Town.”
Sierra Leonean football fans are optimistic about Davies’ inclusion in the national team. His wealth of experience and football knowledge are expected to boost confidence and provide valuable guidance to the younger players in the squad.
