The President of the Liberia Football Association (LFA) Musa Bility, has called on religious leaders to fervently pray for the LoneStar as they battle Ivory Coast on November 14, 2015.
The LFA President made the plea yesterday, during the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) regular press briefing held in Monrovia.
Bility also cautioned Liberians to observe proper and orderly security protocols during the match, noting that some citizens misuse democratic freedom of association by exhibiting violent conducts.
He warned players who are also in the constant habit of misbehaving to be reminded that they risk being dismissed from the team because the law governing football is not different from other laws.
“The match between Liberia and Ivory Coast is expected to be played on the 14 of next month. The decision was left with the two teams to come out with a date, but they choose November 14, 2015. They are an aging team and needs more practice to be fully prepared to play,” said Bility.
As a matter of protocol, he disclosed that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Vice President Joseph Boakai will park their official vehicles at a distance and walk to the stadium, stressing that fans should exhibit good moral behavior and stop violating the rights of other people.
