The Lone Star of Liberia has left for Morocco for two separate matches in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
Liberia will complete home matches on 13 November against Group leader Nigeria and after three days play third-placed candidate, Central African Republic (CAR).
The Liberian delegation includes Mighty Barrolle Vice President, Mrs. Roseline Hunter-Konneh, LFA Deputy Secretary for legal affairs Benedict Yarsiah, LFA Media Videographer, and Photographer Salia Kamara, and Journalist Christopher Walker of FrontPage Africa.
Others are Head Coach Peter Butler, Assistant Coach Christopher Wreh, Trainer George Gebro, Goalkeeper Trainer Nathaniel Sherman, who replaced his predecessor Sunday Sieh, and Team Doctor Torsou Jallabah.
Meanwhile, Administrative Manager Sebastian Collins, Kit Manager Tommy Johnson, Physiotherapist Patrick Konuwa, and Kit man Sunnyboy Mason are also included on the list.
The local players’ delegation includes Watanga Goalkeeper, Derrick Julu, Carlos Williams, Alvin Maccornel, LPRC Oilers’ defenders in Sampson Dweh and Ben Benaiah, and finally, LISCR shot-stopper Tommy Songo’s.
Speaking recently on Spoon Network, LFA President Mustapha Raji said Morocco was selected as an alternative home venue because of the minimum cost attached and the cordial relationship between the LFA and Royal Morocco Football Federation.
Raji and other foreign-based players are expected to join the team in Tanger, Morocco in coming days.
