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.
