Liberia: Senate Congratulates National Team Over CAR Win


MONROVIA – The Liberian Senate has congratulated the national team, Lone Star, for  its vital victory over the Central African Republic  in the 2022 World Cup qualifier match.

President Pro-Tempore Albert T. Chie said the victory was made possible based on the hard work and strong commitment on the part of the technical staff, the players and Liberians in general.

Senate Pro-Temp Chie further acknowledged the allocation of US$725,000 by the Liberian Senate in the Special Budget for preparation toward the World Cup  qualifier games which, according to him, was one of the major steps in helping the national team  to fully prepare  itself in the prestigious encounters. 

 He noted that the Senate remains committed to help ensure that the national team is up to the task financially so as to bring smiles on the faces of the citizenry through its performance on the continental and world stages.

 Senator Chie also challenged the national team players to see the victory as a step forward to greater performances that will subsequently lead to the end-result of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time.

With a sense of determination, the Pro-Tempore said, the Senate remains confidence that the Lone Star will definitely qualify for the upcoming World Cup.

He used the medium to call on all Liberians to collectively support the team and have the confidence in the team to lead us to the World Cup, noting “Sport is a unifying force, as such we should rally around our boys in the red, white and blue colors”
