The national soccer team Lone Star has arrived in Maseru, Lesotho for the return leg against The Crocodiles following its 1-0 lead in the first leg in Monrovia, two weeks ago.
Lone Star needs at least a draw to qualify over Lesotho.
According to journalist Fombah Kanneh, who is traveling with the team, the boys are in high spirits for the game.
Fombah said the strength of mind to win is seen on the faces of the players, and was boosted when Italian Coach Roberto Landi joined them in Ghana.
But playing at home, Lesotho may go into action on Sunday with the intention to cancel Liberia’s lead. However, with ideas from the coaches, it is hoped that an effective defensive strategy could be devised to ensure that the 1-0 lead is protected.
Meanwhile, according to Lesotho’s Molapo Sports Centre, The Crocodiles need at least 2-0 against Lone Star, and they could follow the example of their junior national team, U-20 that qualified 4-1 in aggregate against Angola in Maseru.
The Crocodiles will be going to the game with nothing less than more attacking football since its coach Matete told journalists after their first leg in Monrovia that losing 1-0 was a good away record.
Liberia’s 27-man delegation: Uriah Glaybo (head of delegation), Interim Head Coach Thomas Kojo, Interim Deputy Coach Janjay Jacobs, trainer Mueller Fabian, team manager Sebastian Collins, Doctor Patrick Konuwa and journalist FombahKanneh.
