Lone Star Delegation Arrive In Egypt to Honor Friendly


Monrovia – A 32-man Liberia Football Association (LFA) delegation have arrived in the Northern African State of Egypt ahead of a friendly encounter with the Egyptian national team.

Lone Star will face the Pharos of Egypt at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria on 30 September.

Liberia will use the match to prepare for their back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde in October.

Coach Butler is unable to invite foreign-based players because the FIFA window, which obligates clubs to release their players called-up for international duties, runs from 3-13 October.

The team began training at the Samuel Kanyon Doe sports complex practice pitch in Paynesville on 20 September.

The LFA delegation departed Monrovia on September 28,2021  onboard an ASKY airline.
