Liberia Hosts Sierra Leone U-23 Sunday

Liberia’s national under-23 side will determine her own verdict comes Sunday at the SKD stadium. Lone Star junior side is pocketing one point and a goal from her away match in Serra Leone last month.

With such a gigantic task to perform in a 0-0 or win encounter to advance to the next stage, there are lots of pressure on Hungarian coach Bicskei. The Hungarian named a 22-man team few days ago, which has been undergoing some demanding training sessions.

The starting defense of Lone Star is looking solid from their session if the right legs are selected as assumed. The possible defense eyeing Sunday drama session observed LPRC Oilers Bill Paytoe in right back, Namie Yancy positing on the left.

The central defense is yet to be settled, with two needed to be selected from the three, BYC captain Alpha James is hoping to be paired with LISCR FC’s Michal Jaesue or LPRC Oilers Teah Dennis.

Such selection is the best for the encounter as fans explained.  Dealing with the issues of midfield and forward balls connection are important for this match.

The three possible starting midfielders are: Theo Weeks of Ankaragucu FC in Turkey, Marcus Macaulay and Patrick Doeplah of Hapoel Kfar Saba FC. In attack, Sekou Jabateh of Russia; Nimba FC attacker Sam Johnson and Patrick Wleh will form the trio.

Oversea base forward invitee Patrick Doeplah was seen operating on the left and right attacked during their inner practice game on Wednesday. Although the blue team won 2-0, Patrick Doeplah and Patrick Wleh goals came as the result of individual force.
