The two sisterly countries are expected to battle this Monday in an international friendly in Monrovia and INSIGHT SPORT has cataloged the record between both sides.

The man now in charge of Football in Liberia, LFA Vice President for Administration, Musa Shannoh confirmed on Monday that the Leone Stars and the Lone Stars will battle in a FIFA sanctioned friendly.

Both countries are expected to use the game as part of preparation for next weekend AFCON 2019 qualifiers.

The Leone Stars of Sierra Leone will face Kenya in Freetown on June 10, 2017 while the Lone Stars of Liberia will lock horns with Zimbabwe in Harare on the 11th of June.

Monday paring will be the 10th international friendly games between the two countries. Both sides have won three matches each in the previous nine meetings with three draws.

In the over all head to head record, the two Mano River Region countries have met 14 times, including Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup parings. Out of the 14 games, Liberia has won seven, drawn four and lost three.

Sierra Leone have not kicked a ball since they last failed to qualify for the AFCON 2017 in Gabon.

Their last encounter was against Les Éléphants of Ivory Coast in Abidjan and it ended in a 1-1 draw.

Liberia, on the other hand, lost 1-0 to Leone Stars next month’s opponent Kenya on November 15, 2016, at the Moi International Sports Centre in a friendly test.

Both Sierra Leone and Liberia head coaches John Keister and James Debbah have welcomed the friendly.
