The Liberia senior national team will arrive Nigeria on Tuesday ahead of their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Lone Stars will be aiming to qualify for the global football showpiece for the first time in their history, but must negotiate their way past Gernot Rohr’s men, Cape Verde, and Central African Republic in Group C.
A post on the Facebook page of the Liberia Football Association, revealed that the team will jet in at Murtala Muhammed International Airport on August 31 for the clash on Friday.
Peter Butler’s men will face the Central African Republic in the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, three days after slugging it out against Nigeria.
Speaking of his side’s chances against Nigeria at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Coach Butler said:
“I am going to compete, be organised and be attacked-minded.
“Firstly, I don’t use social media and a lot of those young lads who were listed, I didn’t select them and whoever did that is false to start with.
“It’s going to be a tough group and favourites Nigeria have got qualities and are heavily funded as compared to us, but I’m going to back myself against any coach in this group.
“They have Wilfred [Ndidi], Kelechi [Iheanacho], Alex [Iwobi] I could name more…but we’re going to be competitive and I believe we’re going to offset a few teams on the road.”
