Liberia: 26 Home-based Players Invited for Lone Star Training Camp




MONROVIA, Montserrado – The head coach of the Liberian national team, Thomas Kojo, has invited 26 locally based players for Lone Star’s training camp ahead of the crucial 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers against D.R. Congo in Kinshasa on March 22.
The list, which includes four goalkeepers, eight defenders, 10 midfielders, and four strikers, is dominated by LISCR Football Club, which is represented by nine players. The 2018 Liberia Football Association First Division champions, Barrack Young Controllers, followed with eight players while the LPRC Oilers has four players included. Nimba United, Monrovia Club Breweries, NPA Anchors, Watanga Football Club and second division side FC Bea Mountain each have one player represented.
The names of Kojo’s selected players were released by the Liberia Football Association through its official Facebook page. Players will have their medical examination before beginning training on Wednesday, January 16 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Central Monrovia.


Liberia will take on D.R. Congo in their final match of the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers on March 22 and will need at least a win away from home to qualify for their third ever Nations Cup. The Lone Star is currently seated second in Group G with seven points from five games, one point less than group leaders, Zimbabwe.
A draw for Liberia away at D.R. Congo and a win for Zimbabwe at home against Congo Brazzaville on the final day of qualifiers will send the Lone Star through on nine points, while a defeat to D.R. Congo will end the Lone Star’s hopes of qualification.
Meanwhile, if Congo Brazzaville wins away at Zimbabwe by at least a goal without conceding, a draw away at D.R. Congo will be of no use to Liberia, which will exit based on goal difference.
