With a place at stake to reach the next continental competition in Ivory Coast, This contest is expected to be a do-or-die encounter between the nations in search of a place in the Ivory Coast 2023 Cup of Nations.

Liberia will host the return leg on Tuesday, 28 March, at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium.

They fought with everything to draw parity away from home in their Matchday two Group K 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifier.

Mohammed Sangare’s 91st power long-range striker earned Liberia a 2-2 draw in a crucial Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier at Orlando Stadium on Friday night.

A wonder goal – the strike was so surreal it seemed like something out of this orbit – like an alien object shooting like a cannon into the goal.

Burnley striker Lyle Foster heard given the host the lead with his brace in the opening 22-minutes.

The West African departed the O.R. Tambo International airport to depart Johannesburg and continue preparations for the return leg in Monrovia.

Bafana would host Morocco in their final Group K match in June this year before Liberia decider against Morocco in September.

Morocco are leading the table with six points from their two wins against South Africa and Liberia in June last year.
