Zimbabwe senior men’s National Soccer team will face Liberia for only the 3rd time on Sunday with Zimbabwe leading the head to head clashes.

The teams were in the same group for the 2012 AFCON qualifiers. The teams drew 1 all in the first round of matches before Zimbabwe walloped the lone star 3 nil at the National Sports Stadium in the reverse match.

Liberia is best known for the 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year , George Weah.

They have never reached the World Cup finals but has twice qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations – 1996 and 2002.

Since the retirement of George Weah, the roster of the national team changed significantly. Currently, a lot of Liberian international footballers play in exotic leagues, strikingly often in the Asian countries Indonesia and in Malaysia.
