Liberians playing abroad resumed action with their respective clubs over the weekend after participating in the Lone Star’s painful exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
Anthony Laffor came off the bench to help the Mamelodi Sundowns to a 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership clash at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Wednesday evening.
Ahead of this week’s FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifiers, domestic leagues were finishing up play before the break in a weekend that was disastrous for Liberians playing away as they saw more defeats than wins.
Despite not making coach Pitso Mosimane’s starting eleven, South African-based Anthony Snothi Laffor continues to prove his worth to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Club football resumed across the world after the international football break and some Liberians playing away had a joyous weekend while many experienced losses.
Sam Johnson is not the standout player for Liberia that he is for Djurgårdens IF. Despite his recent fine form with former club IK Frej, the presence of the likes of Sekou Oliseh, Tonia Tisdell and Anthony Laffor has seen him struggle to earn a call for the senior National team.
