Big blow for Liberia
-Goalie Songo sidelined by injury
By Boy Dolo
The Lone Star number one stopper has been out of action for about two weeks and may miss another week due to injury.
LISCR FC has announced that Tommy Songo will miss another week as a result of an injury he sustained during practice session about two weeks ago on his hallux ("big toe").
The Liberia National Team goalkeeper has not played for the club in the last two matches, and LISCR FC Coach Robert Lartey said the player may be on the sideline for additional one week.
After a rising public concern about the player lack of appearance in the last two matches for the Club, Lartey said it was not deliberate to keep the stopper out of the team, blaming it on the injury.
“Songo remains our number one goalkeeper we have not been using him because of injury he sustained on the big toe”, Lartey said.
Liberia is due to play Togo on June 5 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Central Monrovia in a crucial 2017 Nations Cup qualifier.
Songo emerged from a drink-seller at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) to a LISCR FC number one goalie before taking on national duty making his debut appearance against Guinea-Bissau in a historic 3-1 away win and has since gone on to become the nation's number one stopper.
