The 33-year-old Mamelodi Sundowns man is part of the squad announced on Monday that will play the Warriors on the 18th of November.

In an interview with, Laffor who has just made two appearances this season due to injuries revealed that he is expecting to return to action soon.

“I got injured in training, and I was recovering well. I went to play for my country, and after the game against Congo, I got injured on my knee. But soon you guys will see me on the pitch,” he said.

“We [Liberia] also have a game against Zimbabwe very soon, so I need to prepare very well and see how best I can handle the situation. I am not far [from making a return].”

The encounter will be played at Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium in Monrovia.

The west Africans need nothing less of a win to keep their chances of reaching the finals alive. On the other hand, the Warriors want at least a draw to book their qualification.
