George Weah, President of Liberia and former World Footballer of the Year, made a surprise return to global football in Monrovia on Tuesday, playing for 79 minutes in a 2-1 friendly loss to Nigeria a few weeks short of his 52nd birthday.
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 home side pulled one back with a late Kpah Sherman penalty.
"We have to find him, expose him to the world and give him the opportunity to actualise his dream", a statement by Olajire quoted Weah, African, European and World Footballer of the Year in 1995 as saying.
He wrote on twitter; "George Weah playing for Liberia is a real joke and disrespectful of the Super Eagles".
The last time Liberia and Nigeria played, at senior level, was in 2001 during the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2002 World Cup qualifier.
