Victories from the dual away and home matches against Djibouti could possibly cancel Liberia’s 14 year drought in the African of Cup Nations (CAN).
This dream can become a reality if a group of local and foreign based players are selected to produce the magical wand, and the recall of midfielder Theo Weeks to join Anthony Laffor, Zah Kranga and Dioh William. The call-up of the terrible trio, William Jebor, Sam Johnson and Patrick Wleh, could make a big difference.
Meanwhile, Liberia’s former celebrated star turned coach, James Salinsa Debbah, has recalled 19 foreign based players for the two games against Djibouti.
The General Secretary of the Liberia Football Association (LFA), Emmanuel Deah, said the games are scheduled for Thursday, March 24, in Djibouti City, Djibouti and in Monrovia, on Thursday, March 29, at the ATS.
According to an LFA release 10 of the players are plying their trade in Europe, six in Asia and two are playing in Africa.
Notable among the invited players are strikers William Jebor, Sam Johnson and Patrick Wleh, while the midfielders are Anthony Laffor, Zah Kranga and Theo Weeks, who is making his return to the national team after a long absence.
