In preparation for the forthcoming County Meet, the Nimba County squad on Sunday, November 20, defeated 3rd division side Lions FC 2 – 0 in a friendly soccer match at the Ganta Sport Stadium in Ganta City.
Nimba dominated the game from start to the finish, scoring their first goal in the 4th minute.
Although the goal enlivened the spirit of the spectators, they were, however, skeptical about the Mountainous boys winning the game.
The Lions doubled their attacks but they could not get the equalizer.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, November 13, Nimba County drew 0-0 with Bong County in another friendly.
Nimba fans were not too impressed with the draw with Bong County although the technical team had assured that the team, with nearly two weeks to the start of the County Meet, is smoothing out its rough edges in preparation for the tournament.
“We are making sure to patch all the leakages in the squad before the league begins,” said Musa Jabateh.
Nimba will play against Montserrado, Rivercess and Sinoe in the group stage, beginning December 3 at the Sanniquellie Sports Stadium.
