George Weah plays for Liberia in friendlies

The Everton loanee found the top right corner to open the scoring for Gernot Rohr's men before Simeon Nwankwo sealed the victory to crown an impressive first-half performance.

The game, played at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex, was arranged in honour of the country's president and 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year, George Weah.

Liberia then pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 89th minute, but the result seemed unimportant as Weah wandered back onto the pitch after full-time to suck in the adulation one last time.

The Liberian president, George Weah, on Tuesday featured in an worldwide friendly for his country against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

He wrote on twitter; "George Weah playing for Liberia is a real joke and disrespectful of the Super Eagles". Against the Super Eagles of Nigeria?

Desata innumerables criticas caricatura de Serena Williams
Un medio australiano ha sido criticado por una caricatura que han hecho de la tenista Serena Williams . El dinero le será descontado de su premio de 1.85 millones de dólares como subcampeona.

The Ballon d'Or victor, who is now president of the country, was given the chance to wear his preferred No 14 shirt one last time in a friendly match with Nigeria.

@Khenke_Kenny "President of Liberia George Weah is playing against us, we would have still won if President Buhari played for us". Hope Ighalo is watching?

@Agboyi_boy "Onyekuru far better". Over two legs, Weah, then captain of the Lone Stars came close, failed to help his team secure a World Cup ticket.

Weah, a former professional footballer, featured for 79 minutes in the game played in the capital, Monrovia.
