Ahead of the Under-23 battle on December 19, indications are that the country’s participation in the qualifying series of the Olympic Games is well on good footing.
The team might just cruise pass their initial opponents, neighboring Sierra Leone if their current form and first leg result are things to count. The match is bound for next Sunday at the SKD Sports Complex in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
With the maiden leg in Freetown ending in a one all, the U-23 side of Liberia is indeed spirited to award the people of Liberia for their confidence in them.
Even Hungarian tactician Bertalan Bicskei is pulling all means to secure the deserving points to move on to the next stage of the qualifying competition.
The head coach has already recommended to the Liberia FA the names of a few oversea football actors, who meet the age requirement, to harmonize the local based squadron. CSK Moscow’s Liberian striker Sekou Jabateh is distinguished on the list.
On October 9, 2010 in Freetown, Sierra Leone, the Liberian side, playing with just a single oversea player, Tonia Tisdell, came from a goal down to record a memorable away 1-1 dram.
Back home, the boys are fervent to close the chapter with their counterparts from Sierra Leone by edging them out of the contest.
Meanwhile, the LFA President has declared that all priorities have been placed on the Olympic Games.
Addressing the Herbert Grisgby Forum, organize by the local sports journalist body in Monrovia over the weekend, Musa Bility said the LFA has even graded the Olympic qualifiers over the Nations Cup qualifiers.
