National team arrives in Egypt for friendly on 30 September

A 32-man Liberia Football Association (LFA) delegation arrived in Alexandria at 03:00GMT (5:00AM local time) for a friendly international with Egypt at the Borg El Arab Stadium on 30 September.

The delegation, which is based at the Tolip Family Club Borg El Arab hotel, left Monrovia onboard an ASKY airline on 28 September for Accra, Ghana.

They boarded an Ethiopian airline from Accra to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and from Addis to Cairo, Egypt.

The delegation is headed by LFA President Mustapha Raji and includes Deputy Sports Minister Andy Quamie, Nimba Kwado President Tomah Seh Floyd, Jr. and LFA media manager Danesius Marteh.

Others are head Peter Butler, deputy coach Christopher Wreh, goalkeeping coach Sunday Seah, physical trainer George Gebro, administrative manager Sebastian Collins, team doctor Torsou Jallabah, medic Boakai Abu Kamara and equipment manager Tommy Johnson.

Players include LPRC Oilers goalkeeper Alpha Eshaka Jalloh and defender Ben Benaiah and striker Van Dave Harmon, who is on trial in Egypt.

Liberia will use the match to prepare for back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde in October.

Coach Butler is unable to invite foreign-based players because the FIFA window, which obligates/mandates clubs to release their players called-up for international duties, runs from 3-13 October.

The team began training at the Samuel Kanyon Doe sports complex practice pitch in Paynesville on 20 September.

The delegation will return to Monrovia on 2 October.
