Fun! Liberia’s President, George Weah Plays Against Super Eagles In Liberia Friendly

President George Weah and his old team mate, James Debbah were on parade for the Lone Star on Tuesday in an international friendly against the Super  Eagles of Nigeria.

The Liberia president who played for about74 minutes was peered alongside his old team mate, James Debbah in the encounter.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) used the match to celebrate the only African player to ever win the World Footballer of the Year after he emerged as the number one citizen of Liberia earlier this year.


Expectedly every touch of the ball by Weah was greeted with loud cheers and applause from the fans who thoroughly enjoyed themselves watching some of the best past and present African players on parade.

Major highlight of the match was the retirement of Weah’s famous No 14 jersey which he wore throughout his career as the captain of the Lone Star of Liberia.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria however defeated the Lone Star of Liberia 2-1 in the international friendly match played at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium, Monrovia.
