Lone Star 2023 Afcon chances have again started fading away

The Lone Star of Liberia’s poor performances in International competitions continued on Monday, June 13, 2022, in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers at the Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca.

The red, white, and blue hope of ending a 20-year wait for the nation’s cup final has started fading away after an unexpected 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Atlas Lions.

Liberia had a great display in the first half but things got worst when Faycal Fajr scored an early-minute penalty in the 2nd half to put the Noth Africans ahead.

En-Nesyri doubled Morocco’s lead in the 57 minutes from a placement in the 18-yard box which condemned the Lone Star to an opening defeat in the qualifiers of Group K.

Morocco now has six points from two straight wins to keep them top of the group.

Liberia’s last participation in a Nations Cup final was in Mali 2002 edition when President George Weah was still in his prime.

Meanwhile, Liberia used Morocco as her home venue due to a banned place on its National Stadium, the SKD Sports Complex, because of its failure to meet CAF and FIFA minimum stadiums requirements.
