Liberia leave on Wednesday to honor friendly with Equatorial Guinea
A 27-man Liberia Football Association (LFA) delegation leaves Monrovia on Wednesday to honor an international friendly with Equatorial Guinea on 21 July.
The delegation is headed by LFA executive committee member Beatrice Maime Kpoto and includes Solomon Wah, head coach Thomas Kojo, deputy coach Samuel Chebli and trainer George Gebro.
Others are goalkeeping coach Eric Glasco, administrative manager Sebastian Collins, kitman Tommy Johnson and physiotherapist Patrick Konuwa.
Kojo and his technical staff selected 18 of the 25-players, who were named on 22 June to prepare for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier with Senegal on 28 July.
The squad underwent changes with the departure of LISCR goalkeeper Ashley Williams and LPRC Oilers defender Sampson Dweh, who left Liberia for a trial with Austrian Bundesliga club Rapid Vienna on 9 July.
New call-ups like goalkeeper Prince Wlame, midfielder Armah Vaikainah and strikers Varney Dukuly and Terry Sackor were retained.
Kojo’s strikers, which include Christopher Jackson, Varney Dukuly and Terry Sackor, scored 48 goals in the first division.
Muscat FC striker Mark Yallah and Pags FC striker Mark Karley, who scored a total of 36 league goals in the second division, didn’t make the cut.
The squad began training at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) on 1 July following medical and physical examinations, which began on 24 June.
Here is the full squad.
