Apart from facing the prospects of missing two key players – Allen Njei who captained them last month and Abu Kamara owing to yellow card-related issues, the Lone Star of Liberia will be without star Striker Kpah Sheraman when they file out on Saturday in the world qualifiers with the Super Eagles.
According to a report by Christopher Walker of Liberia’s FrontPage Africa who is in Tangier with the team, the striker has been ruled out due to documentation issues in Asia.
Sherman was part of the 22 invited for the two games with Nigeria and the Central African Republic and was sent his ticket for the match but unfortunately, the player has informed the team that he will not make the trip to Morocco.
He was expected to join the rest of the team members on Thursday morning and opted to stay in Malaysia and sort out his documentation.
The striker who plays for Kedah FC in Malaysia give the Lone Star their only win in the Competition with his lone goal against the Central African Republic.
He informed the FA his resident permit in Malaysia will expire on November 21 2021 and if he makes the trip to African he will not be able to enter Malaysia.
Sherman played in all the qualifiers under Peter Butler since taking over from former coach Thomas Kojo and has formed a great partnership with Van- Dave Harmon in the Red, White and Blue attack.
Now with the striker out of the team for the two matches, Butler will now have to look in the way of Peter Wilson or Van- Dave Harmon as his point strikers while Sylvanius Nimely, Musa Sanoh are options for Butler in a four-three formation.
Lone Star currently sits at the bottom of Group C with three points from four games and has never reached the finals of the world cup but came close to reaching the 2002 World Cup with current President George Weah in that team as a player.
