Rejuvenated members of the Lone Star’s Under-23 national soccer team have expressed total sanguine at their debut for the London 2012 qualifier against the Leone Star of Sierra Leone.
Liberia is expected to travel early this week to Freetown, Sierra Leone, to honor an Olympic qualifying match against the selected national Olympic team of that West African Nation on 10 October 2010.
Although, there are reports that Liberia’s Manor River neighbor (Sierra Leone) has been preparing for this qualifier for over a year now, Lone Star’s Under 23 team is certain of defeating them.
Even cognizant of the fact that the Sierra Leone’s players have been adequately preparing for this encounter, Liberia’s Under-23 are feeding the high hope of getting their ticket for London 2012 Olympic.
Speaking to the New Dawn Sports shortly after one of the training sessions at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia yesterday, James Lomell who may likely go to Sierra Leone if not Mali, expressed gratitude to his teammates for the level of cohesiveness built over the past time. As a result of this, Lomell sees nothing less than a land slide victory on October 10, 2010.
Lenmie Yansay, a tactical striker on the team, urged the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to continue its support to the U-23 for the qualifier of one of the World biggest sports jamboree.
Although Coach Frank Jericho Nagbe, the man expected to lead the Under 23 side against Sierra Leone, is tight-lipped on his formation in Freetown, his Boss Coach Bertalan Bicskei has confided in this paper that the boys will shortly move to camp before their departure next week.
