Angry fans of Sierra Leone's national football team have attacked a player's house after he missed an important penalty.

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

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

After the game fans pelted Bangura's home with stones.

BBC reports 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.
