The Liberian national football team, the Lone Star has been sent out of the qualifying rounds of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2015 by the Crocodiles of Lesotho. The Lone star was sent out of the competition on a 2-1 goal aggregate after the second leg in Lesotho Sunday.
The Liberia national football team was taken over by the Italian coach Robert Landi with just four days to the game, replacing Thomas Kojo who handled the first home match. The southern African nation which managed a slim defeat in Monrovia some two weeks ago are now set to meet Kenya or the Comoros island before being place in the Group C with Angola, Burkina Faso, and Gabon for 1015 (AFCON).
Lesotho’s goals came in the first half, scored in just five minutes apart in the 40th and 45th minutes of the match. The defeat of the senior national team by Lesotho comes just days after the under-20 side was also kicked out by their Ivorian counterparts on similar goal aggregates.
Liberia is yet the only African country to produce the World Best player and has only been to the competition twice. Liberian made her first appearance in 996 and 2002 but performed dismally without even getting to pass the group stages.
