Liberia national football team

Nickname: Lone Stars
Association: Liberia Football Association
Coach: Frank J. Nagbe aka "Jeroko". A former national team player .

The Liberia national football team, nicknamed the Lone Stars, is the national team of Liberia and is controlled by the Liberia Football Association. Although the country produced the 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year, George Weah (the first as so far the only African to receive that honor), they have failed to transfer the individual success to the team stage. Liberia has never reached the World Cup, although they did come a point short of qualifying in 2002.


George Weah

Weah is seen as the "patron saint" of the Liberian team; not only has he played and coached the side, he also spent a lot of his own money to help out the team in its quest for glory. He's also the FIFA World Player of the Year 1995, runner-up 1996.African Player of the year 1989, 1994, 1995. European Player of the Year 1995

His name stands for the achievements he made in this world:

W = World Best Player.
E = European Best Player.
A = African Best Player.
H = Hero of the World.

Well done King George. Liberia Loves you.
