Liberia’s Under-23 female team will come alive on Sunday against Ghana in the first all African game campaign at the ATS in Monrovia. Head coach Lucretius Togba and Assistant, Winston Doe are ensuring that all is well with the spirited female side for the encounter.
The Liberian side, over the pass weeks, has been undergoing intensive training to thrash the Ghanaians. The team is currently in camp, gearing up to display their skills on Sunday to ensure total victory.
Lone star female delegation will need great number of energy to contain their Ghanaian counterparts during 90 minutes of action. The Ghanaians are due in Monrovia today ahead of the Sunday clash.
Officials of the game are Referees Amina Fall, Die Alse Sylla and Adja Cisse from the Ivory Coast and Senegal, while Liberia’s Vivian Howard will be the Reserved Referee. The match Commissioner is Nathalie Basque from Ivory Coast.
Meanwhile, the Liberian national Under-20 football team has resumed training at the ATS without proper care. Visiting the training session on Wednesday morning Feb-9-2011, it was discovered that players have been tasked to provide training materials for themselves, including suits and transportation fairs.
Early December of 2010, the players were abandoned by authorities of the Liberia Football Association to transport themselves to practice sessions daily.
The players were also tasked to purchase three pairs of the Lone Star Adidas jerseys (Red & white, blue & red and red & white sleeveless jersey). A pair of training suit on the Liberian market costs US$10.00, while the total cost is US$30.00 for three pairs.
If the information gathered at the Lone Star training site is something to believe, Liberia will then be the only country in the whole world whose players are responsible to purchase training materials all by themselves.
