The Liberia national football team, nicknamed the Lone Stars, is the national World Cup finals. Weah has been a patron of the Liberian team; not only has he played for and coached the side, but he also sponsored the team with his own money.

Liberia has twice qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations1996 and 2002.

In 2010, the Hungarian Bertalan Bicskei, former coach of the national teams of Hungary and Malaysia, was named head coach of the Liberian national team. After being poisoned and seeking medical treatment, he was replaced by Roberto Landi for the rest of 2011.[1]

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.
