The Likuena of Lesotho, dubbed the Crocodiles, scraped through the preliminary second round of the 2015 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers after defeating Lone Star 2-0 in Maseru.
Lesotho thus qualified on a 2-1 goal-aggregate.
The Crocodiles will lock horns with Kenya's Harambee Stars, who also qualified on a 2-1 aggregate after being held 1-1 by Comoros in Moroni.
Liberia’s loss Sunday marked the continuation of the country’s nightmare in the African Cup Nations (Afcon) since her second qualification in 2002, during the days of the famous George Weah.
Disappointingly last week, the Young Elephants of La Cote D’Ivoire, also threw out Jr. Lone Star, dubbed the Satellites, from the U-20 CAF Championship Tournament also on a 2-1 goal-aggregate.
The continuous dismal performance of the two-legged Lone Star teams within a week has attested to the detestation of many Liberians, including Chief Patron of Sports, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, wh odid not mention the national team in her recent Annual Message, but rather hailed the one-legged Lone Star (Amputee Lone Star) team for retaining the title as Africa Amputee Cup of Nations champion.
“The national team of Liberia, the Lone Star, isn’t the nation’s pride and joy anymore,” Coach Sieh Jones of Monrovia told the Daily Observer Sunday.
Much is not known of the play-by-play description of the game; but according to a social media report, Alseny Keita who was selected over Theo Weeks didn’t play because of injury.
Lone Star: Nathaniel Sherman, Alpha James, Prince Jetoh, Teah Dennis, Aloysius Simujla, Chris Roosevelt Jones, James Soto Roberts, Anthony Snorti Laffor & Eddie Wulu, Sekou Jabateh Oliseh, Kpah Sherman.
