Another Liberian Striker Discovered in USA
As Liberia rebuild its junior and senior national football teams, the need to continue the search for youthful Liberian players plying the trade in various parts of the world cannot be over emphasized. Geremi Davies was early this week discovered by New Dawn Sports in the USA.
The attacking midfielder was born on March 31, 1993. He left Liberia with his parents to seek refuge in Ghana during the civil crisis in Liberia and moved to the United State from Ghana in 2007. He’s now established in the Carvala FC squad for seasons and regarded as the team’s top midfielder in America.
The midfielder’s 27 appearances for the club this year have resulted to 12 goals. Dives won his first award in the US when he emerged as the Most Valuable player for his high school in 2008, where he earned an invitation to trained with Harrisburg City Islanders FC, but was unable to sign with the 1st division side due to club value.
Davis was spotted by the American National U-20 where he failed due to the lack of documents. When the New Dawn spoke with the player from his College in Maryland, he explained that his manager is working out things for a move to Europe.
He noted that when the chances come for him, he would honor the invitation to play for Liberia, but wants players on the national junior and senior team to be at their best for a bright future.
