‘Ronaldinho’ Wleh Not In Debbah’s Squad

Liberia’s international striker, Patrick ‘Ronaldinho’ Wleh, who plies his trade for Malaysian Premier League club PKNS, has been overlooked by Liberia’s Lone Star head coach, James Salinsa Debbah for the second time.

It can be recalled that the striker was not called by Coach Debbah for the first match of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Sparrow Hawks of Togo in the match the red, white and blue outfit lost 2-1.

‘Ronaldinho’ Wleh has been in top form since his return from knee injury, scoring four goals and several assists in seven league matches.

The more than six feet tall striker was a delight to watch for Malaysia All Star last month against English Premiership side, Liverpool FC in a friendly encounter where the he took 13 minutes to separate both sides with a fantastic goal though the match later ended 1-1.

Wleh, who was previously left out of the squad by Malaysia National team head coach Dollah Salleh, pulled out a brilliant performance in a friendly against the Malaysia All Star by netting twice which prompted the technical staff to make an emergency U-turn and include the powerful frontman.

Coach Debbah has left out the brilliant striker and there are reports that he has included several unattached players in the Lone Star squad for the crucial clash against Tunisia for the second match of the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier on September 5, 2017 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia.

Some players called by Coach Debbah who are reportedly unattached include George Weah, Jr, Son of Africa’s football legend, King George Weah, Sekou Jabateh Olisseh and Adolphus Nagbe Marshall.

Debbah has also called Greek lower league side, Platanias’ Liberian striker, Herron Berrian who is injured according to credible reports from Greece.
Coach Debbah still has time in his favour to call on the Liberian ‘Ronaldinho’ who has all it takes to destroy Tunisia on September 5, 2015.

Radio Gbarnga Sports has gathered that the Liberia Football Association has suspended all major leagues.

Making the disclosure to Radio Gbarnga Sports Friday via a Facebook chat, LFA Secretary General Alphonso Armah said the decision was reached through the competition committee during the week.

He said the LFA was resolved to halt all leagues due to Liberia’s tough match with Tunisia at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia on September 5.

Mr. Armah told Radio Gbarnga Sports that this will give the FA and technical staff of the national team chance to concentrate on the tough match with the North Africans in Monrovia.

Liberia needs to win the match to get back on track in an effort to play in the finals of the 2017 Africa Cup of nations after losing to Togo 2-1 in the first leg of her qualifying campaign in Lome, Togo.

The Tunisia national football team (Arabic: منتخب تونس لكرة القدم), nicknamed Les Aigles de Carthage (The Eagles of Carthage or The Carthage Eagles) are leaders in Group A after whipping Djibouti 7-1 in the first leg of the their qualifying campaign.

Major leagues are expected to resume Sunday September 6 with players in action across the Country.

While the leagues resume the next day, LoneStar head coach James Debbah and assistant Kelvin Sebweh will leave for Germany for further training after the match, according to FA president and FIFA presidential hopeful Musa Bility.

Lone Star Hunts For US$3.5M

By: Leroy M. Sonpon, III

Liberia Football Association president Musa Bility has said that the senior national team – the Lone Star – needs at least US$3.5m to successfully participate in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Bility expressed fears over inadequate funds that might confront the national team if the government fails to help.

He argued that the popular and so-called “no-money syndrome” would scuttle the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

In a press conference on Monday at the football house in Monrovia and in a telephone interview, Bility said the US$250,000 allocated in the 2015/2016 Fiscal Budget for the team is “insufficient,” and hoped that there would be additional funding from the government.

Bility revealed that FIFA has also provided US$300,000 for preparation, which is also “inadequate,” the money was given in accordance to the protocol of the world football governing body.

“The national team is owned by the country and government – the national team needs support,” Bility said.

He indicated that to assist in the galvanizing of the desirable financial support, former football boss and Speaker of the House of Representative – Montserrado County district # 6 Rep. Edwin M. Snowe, Jr. has been asked to serve as chairman of the Mobilization Committee.

He, however, dismissed media reports that Rep. Snowe didn’t submit financial and administrative reports to the LFA on the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

“Rep. Snowe made available his financial report from the last mobilization campaign to the LFA.”

Though, he didn’t mention the sponsorship of Cellcom and the value per game, but reports say Cellcom GSM provides about US$50,000 to the national team per international game.

According to first round’s draw, Liberia will play a two-leg with Guinea Bissau on the 5th and 13th of October, and then in the second round, meets Ivory Coast, on the 9th and 17th of November.

If the Lone Star wins Ivory Coast, she would move to the third round comprising five groups of four. The winners of each group qualify for the World Cup.
