Mpumalanga Black Aces of South Africa ruthless striker, Kpah Sherman, PKNS of Malaysia lethal finisher Patrick Ronaldinho Wleh, Eastern Company Soccer Club of Egypt, and workaholic holding midfielder Weaka Wesseh are three key additions and personnel needed for the important World Cup preliminary fixture on November 14, against the star studded African Champions, Elephants of Ivory Coast at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia.
Kpah Sherman: Endowed with a strong left foot and gifted finishing could provide answers if in the mix. After a tested expedition in Northern Cyprus and Tanzania, he caught the eyes of a promising African league and has now settled comfortably in the Premier Soccer League [PSL] of South Africa and should be included on the Lone Stars’ squad for the all-important Elephants melee. A member of the team’s outing against Lesotho, the former Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) box predator can be a useful impact player against the Elephants as he is certainly among Liberia’s best front men at the moment. His aggression in the final third, sharp shooting ability, tricks, work ethic, subtle moves, and good attitude would no doubt help the Lone Stars against their illustrious opponents who are the reigning African champs by evidence of the lottery penalty shootout win against nemesis Ghana Black Stars in the grand finale of this year’s nations cup in Equatorial Guinea.
Patrick Ronaldinho Wleh: After a recent virtuoso performance against Liverpool FC this off season, as the English team was touring Asia for the selected Malaysian All-Stars, is quite a player the red, white and blue outfit will also need for the crunch Ivory Coast pairing. His towering height, aerial prowess, sublime skills and sweet finishing would also help a Liberian national team that have posted two good early results. Though James Debbah could hold on to his “no need to change a winning team concept”, like Kpah, the former LISCR and Gedi & Sons hit-man, Wleh, could add spice, grit, verve and precision to the Lone Stars front line, no doubt.
Weaka Wesseh: Has been plying his trade in Egypt for the past four seasons, and has since been converted from a deadly finisher to a biting cum workaholic holding or balanced midfielder. He could be useful as a pivot against Yaya Toure and company as there is a need to invite him for the mouthwatering tie with the two times and current African champions. His physical nature, ferocious tackling, team ethic and neat passing will serve as an added impetus for the Lone Stars in this derby.
