( 13, 2015)-The Liberia National Football Team, the Lone Star, delegation is in Guinea Bissau to honor their 2018 FIFA World Cup 2nd leg match against the Wild Dogs. 

The 2018 FIFA World Cup’s preliminary round 2nd leg match is scheduled for today (Tuesday, October 13, 2015) in the Guinea Bissau Capital, Bissau.

The Lone Star needs a win or a 2-2 draw in the Bissau match to progress to the second preliminary round, in which the team will play Ivory Coast in November.

The Lone Star delegation departed the country Sunday, October 11 without problematic attacker, Francis Grandpa Doe. The Liberian prolific attacker was dropped from the second leg of the Guinea Bissau campaign by Coach James Debbah.

According to information, Grandpa Doe was dropped from the Lone Star team for reportedly failing to honor training, just a day after Liberia’s 1-1 draw against Guinea Bissau last Thursday.

Grandpa Doe has not commented on the coach’s action against him. There were no new faces added to the Lone Star squad after the exclusion of player Doe from the Bissau trip.

Report coming in from Bissau says the Lone Star is shearing hotel with the home team, ahead of today’s game.

Meanwhile, Tanzania is through to the next round of the 2018 World Cup preliminaries, despite losing their second leg preliminary tie 1-0 to Malawi. Tanzania went to Blantyre with a 2-0 advantage from their home leg on last Wednesday to go through on 2-1 aggregate.

The country will take on Africa’s top ranked country, Algeria, in the next round.  Ethiopia overturned a shocking 1-0 deficit from the first leg to win the return leg 3-0 to go through 3-1.

In Sunday’s other fixture, Kenya was held 0-0 at home by Mauritius in Nairobi, but still progressed 5-2 on aggregate.
Kenya will face Cape Verd in the next round in November.
