The Super Eagles of Nigeria on September 11, Tuesday night, beat Liberia 2-1 in an international friendly match. The match which was played at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium, Monrovia, was to retire the number 14 jersey of President George Weah

The Liberia president who played for about 74 minutes was peered alongside his old team mate, James Debbah in the encounter.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) used the match to celebrate the only African player to ever win the World Footballer of the Year after he emerged as the number one citizen of Liberia earlier this year.

Expectedly every touch of the ball by Weah was greeted with loud cheers and applause from the fans who thoroughly enjoyed themselves watching some of the best past and present African players on parade.

Major highlight of the match was the retirement of Weah’s famous No 14 jersey which he wore throughout his career as the captain of the Lone Star of Liberia.

Henry Onyekuru who made a return to the Super Eagles scored the first goal in the 11th minute after a brilliant assist from John Ogu.

Simeon Nwankwo netted the second goal for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the 33rd minute as he gained from a superb corner kick played by Etebo.

Liberia scored their only goal in the 89th minute via a penalty through Palsama, but they could not score the needed goal that would have saved them from a defeat as Nigeria won the match 2-1
