Liberia's President George Weah laughs during a news conference at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, April 4, 2018.

The Liberian president, George Weah, has hailed Nigeria as a great and worthy ally in national development and also described Nigerian football as a model that he would want his country to follow.

Some 15 years after retiring from the game, the striker laced up his boots and put on his No 14 shirt to play 80 minutes of his country's 2-1 loss in a friendly to Nigeria.

And the Lions could be without their best defensive player, pass-rusher Ziggy Ansah, who exited the game with a shoulder injury. "I think it was very evident that there were a lot of opportunities we missed out there", Shanahan said.

Although sporting a little extra weight than in his playing days, the 51-year-old still showed some fleet-footedness and managed 79 minutes before leaving the field to a standing ovation.

Weah enjoyed a career in Europe spanning almost a decade and a half that saw him play for Monaco, PSG and Marseille in France, Milan in Italy and English sides Manchester City and Chelsea.

Weah even has a son, Timothy, who has chosen to play global football for the United States. The 18-year-old PSG player featured for the United States in their 1-0 win over Mexico in Nashville.
