Coach Kaetu Smith under the spotlight as Lone Star Loses

The Lone Star of Liberia 3-1 loss to the Teranga Lions of Senegal was the team’s nineteenth competitive consecutive away loss. The team last away victory came when the George Weah led generation pinned down Sierra Leone’s Leone Star 1-0, courtesy of a Weah’s booming header on September 21, 2001. Post Weah, the Lone Star has now played nineteen competitive away matches, losing all. In the process, conceding 54 goals and scoring just nine. This sluggish performance began from September 8, 2002, in the 3-0 away loss to the Sylli Nationale of Guinea during the 2004 AFCON qualifier
