Liberia stars arriving for Uganda World Cup clash

Liberia’s anticipation to play at the Brazil 2014 World Cup will continue next month away to Uganda for another three-point
Liberia have begun earnest training ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifying tie against Uganda.

The Lone Star have been training at the ATS Stadium in Monrovia with selected locally-based players and present in camp is Turkey-based midfielder Theo Lewis Weeks. The preparation is under the tutelage of coach Jericho Nagbe and his deputies Thomas Kolo and Joe Nagbe.

According to Liberia Football Association, 23 locally-based stars were in attendance along with guest players Herron Berran from Cyprus, Alex Karmo of Vienna, BK Baward from India and Dweh Allison of Brazil.

Twelve foreign-based players including Omega Roberts are expected to be in camp soon for the double header against Uganda away and home to Senegal.

Liberia are in Group J with Senegal, Angola and Uganda. Lone Star are currently in the second position on the table behind Senegal with three matches in hand.

A win in Uganda will boost the national team's chances of cruising through to the final stage of the qualifiers.

The team will be without defenders Teah Dennis, who went missing in America and Solomon Grimes who sustained injury. It is, however, unclear if captain Anthony Laffor of Mamelodi Sundowns will feature due to reported case of injury.
