Monrovia - The assistant coach of the national football team of Liberia, the Lone Star, Kelvin Sebwe has called on fans of the national team to refrain from a very bad practice of running on the field at end of matches. Mr. Sebwe spoke last Friday at the welcoming home program of the national football team after her 3-1 away victory against Guinea Bissau.
Coach Sebwe told the fans that if they continue such bad practice, it could cause the national team to lose her points and be fined thousands of dollars and also be banned from playing at home.
“We could score two goals against Ivory Coast in our next match and lose the game only because of misbehavior of you the fans of our national team just for running on the field; and FIFA has written us the last warning letter if such thing happens again, we would no more play our home matches here but in other countries which you all know is not a good record for the country and people”, said Sebwe.
He paid homage to the government of Liberia, the President of LFA and the Ministry of Youth and Sports for the support and said he hopes that more of such support would continue. Hundreds of football enthusiasts on Friday October 16 took to the streets of Monrovia to welcome the national football team of Liberia (The Lone Star) back home from Guinea Bissau where she scored a magnificent victory in the second leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup preliminary round.
