Liberia Vs. Djibouti: 25 man squad named

Liberia national team coach James Debbah has invited Molde FK midfielder Dulee Johnson for the first time since he took over the helm of the hot seat of the ‘Lone Star’. The Liberian is hardly a name that would strike the average African football fan as familiar, yet the little that is known of him is neither very appealing nor complimentary. Dulee Johnson has had an otherwise promising career blighted by a string of personal demons, from criminal charges (even for rape, on one occasion), as well as a handful of drug- and alcohol-related troubles.

Spells with clubs in Israel, Sweden, the Netherlands, Greece, and South Africa have been breached prematurely by such troubles, and on at least one occasion, he has been axed from the national side by past managers, again for drinking problems. Perhaps identifying the bottle as the talented midfielder’s greatest weakness.

Liberia’s Dulee Johnson still maintained his slot in the bad African footballers since he was placed there 2013. The midfielder is the son of veteran Liberian football coach Josiah N. Johnson, who is famously known for the famous quotation that says ” Football is a piece of biscuit, it can break anywhere,” There are those African footballers, who just would not keep to the rules either on the field, off it, or both. A good number of African footballers have earned notoriety for frequently making the headlines for misdeeds of all sorts.

The Technical Staff of the National Soccer Team, the Lone Star has invited 19 foreign based players for Liberia’s crunch back to back Nations Cup qualifiers against Djibouti. According to a release from the Liberia Football Association, 10 of the players play their club football in Europe, six play in Asia and two are playing in Africa.

Coach Debbah has also called up five local based players to complete a strong 25 man squad for the two games that will be played this month. Liberia travels to Djibouti on the 24th of March while the return leg comes on in Monrovia five days later on March 29, 2016 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium. source: The News/Momoh B. Siryon
