Afcon 2019: Liberia Defeat Congo, Get Set for Zimbabwe Nov. 16

Liberia Lone Star Wins


Liberia’s national football team has bounced back with a 2-1 win over Congo at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in an attempt to qualify for the 2019 African Cup of Nations. The win gives the team hope after a three-weeks winless period.
Lone Star claimed victory over their counterparts on Tuesday, October 16, five days after falling to a 3-1 defeat away in Brazzaville. Teah Dennis and William Jebor scored for  Lone Star while Prince Ibara scored the lone goal for Congo.
With Lone Star losing 3-1 in Brazzaville and lying bottom of their group, the match against Congo on Tuesday was a must win for Head Coach Thomas Kojo. The match began with a relatively empty stadium until President George Weah ordered free entry into the stadium.


Liberia remains at the bottom of Group G but with four points, four less than group leaders, Zimbabwe, and one point less than second-placed D.R. Congo. Liberia is tied on points with third-placed Congo. The Lone Star must win their remaining two matches against Zimbabwe and D.R. Congo if they are to qualify for the Cameroon 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides. 
To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
