  1. Good luck. Play well. Score as many goals as possible. We at home and around the world will be extremely happy to hear and see that you’ve crushed the host team. Yes, you can do it. Yes, we can.

    Score board:/ PREDICTION

    LIBERIA….2 GOALS

    DR CONGO: 1 GOAL

  2. Liberia wins. Period. It’s all wishful thinking on the part of Ado.
    The score board above sticks! If the Lone Stars could crush the Zimbabweans, it is a foregone conclusion that the DR will sink.
