Lone Star Misses Golden Opportunity

Thousands of Liberians yesterday witnessed the national soccer team, Lone Star, missing a great opportunity to add three points to secure twelve points in Group A when Togo, led by Crystal Palace’s Emmanuel Adebayor, came from behind to score two goals to even the score 2-2 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

If the Lone Star had won the game, they would have added three points to reach twelve points and kept their position at the top of Group A. Over the weekend Tunisia defeated Djibouti 3-0 to collect three points and they are now at 10 points, equaling Liberia.

Debbah Sets to Make History Sunday

Whatever power stars in the heavens have over hawks that roam about in the heavens will be determined on Sunday when Liberia’s Lone Star welcomes their Togolese counterparts in a crucial Nations Cup decider at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

The Togolese national soccer team is known as Sparrow Hawks and of course the national team’s known as the Lone Star. This, in every sense, is a battle in the air; and whether a lone star can tame sparrow hawks, an expected grueling 90 minutes total soccer will have to reveal.

Poor Organization Defeats Lone Star in Test Match

The president of the Liberia Football Association, Musa Bility, last Monday told sports journalists that religious leaders in the country should come together and pray for the national soccer team, Lone Star, to win Sunday’s crucial Nations Cup match against Togo.

And if that advice will bear fruit, a crack team of the national soccer team yesterday could not display the highly expected level of preparedness, and as a result lost 2-0 to the U-20 national at a test match played at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

Bility told sports journalists in Monrovia yesterday that ten players of the national team are presently in the country, while others are expected in a day to join the preparation for the final countdown against Togo on Sunday.
