(elbcradio.com/July 28, 2015)-Liberia’s Women Under-20 Football Team has been eliminated from the qualifying rounds of the African Women Championship.

The Under 20 female football team was beaten 7-1 and 7-0 in the 1st and 2nd legs, respectively, by its Nigerian counterpart to finish the two legs on 14-1 goal aggregate.

The first leg was played at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) in Monrovia two weeks ago and the 2nd match took place in Abuja, Nigeria.  

The Under-20 female team went into the two matches without playing in any local football competition for more than one year.

Report says the Liberian community in Nigeria was generous in welcoming the team to Abuja and in rallying moral support to them.

Liberia is yet to score a win in international women football competition since the country started participating in such games.

Meanwhile, the Liberian women delegation is due back home early this week.
