Super Eagles Beat George Weah's Liberia
The President of Liberia and former World Footballer of the Year, George Weah tried to roll back the good years as he was in action for the Lone Stars in Tuesday's friendly against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Lone Stars were beaten 2-1 by the Super Eagles team ably led by John Ogu.
Tuesday's game will officially go down as a mere exhibition match as the encounter lost its value as a non official footballer, President George Weah played a part in the game before being substituted and eventually got his jersey number 14 retired by the Liberian national team.

What also robbed the match of its official status was the number of substitutions Nigeria made.
Seven substitutions were made by Coach Gernot Rohr; thus giving all the 18 players on the roster a feel of action.
Henry Onyekuru launched
Nigeria ahead early in the first half before Simeon Nwankwo doubled the lead
taking Nigeria into a 2-0 lead at half time.
Liberia got a consolation for themselves as he pulled a goal back late in the second half when newbie Simi Ajayi was adjudged to have touched the ball in the penalty box.
Liberia converted the penalty to give fans present at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium something to cheer.
