Nigeria edge past Liberia as President Weah shirt retired

George Weah Made His Return to Football in the Liberia vs Nigeria Game 51-year old father, son play for different national teams on same day

Weah, who became the first African victor of the Ballon d'Or in 1995, was elected president of Liberia last December. They can ask that certain players must be part of the team.

Just a few weeks short of his 52nd birthday, there's also a good chance that Weah Senior will now enter the record books as the oldest player to ever feature in a FIFA-sanctioned worldwide match.

@Khenke_Kenny "President of Liberia George Weah is playing against us, we would have still won if President Buhari played for us".

The 51-year-old battled relentlessly, but his efforts went unrewarded and his team found themselves 2-0 down at half-time.

However, there was still time for a nervy finale as Rotherham centre-back Semi Ajayi handled in the penalty area, which was converted to halve the deficit with three minutes remaining, but Nigeria held on.

Hurricane Florence to hit North Carolina, flooding rains ahead
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. According to NHC: "A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.


Since the match, social media have been flooded with criticisms, with Nigerians blasting the Nigeria Football Federation and football legend Weah playing at age 51.

Twitter user Biola Kazeem wrote: "George Weah is a major disappointment".

The President is a former footballer of much acclaim and worldwide repute.

The match at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex had been arranged to honour the former Monaco star, but Weah was not expected to take the field. "It was great to represent Nigeria, this is a good step for me in the national team", Kalu concluded.

The not serious friendly which ended 2-1 in favour of the Eagles saw Weah played for 79 minutes and also retired his number 14 jersey that he wore in his football days. Henry Onyekuru, an Everton player on loan at Galatasaray, was the one to put Nigeria ahead.
