Liberia president and former World Footballer of the Year George Weah made a surprise return to worldwide competition in Monrovia on Tuesday, playing in a 2-1 loss to Nigeria a few weeks short of his 52nd birthday.

"We can not confirm this since our historical records do not include every worldwide friendly that has taken place", a Federation Internationale de Football Association spokesperson told BBC Sport.

Liberia scored their only goal in the 89th minute via a penalty through Palsama, but they could not score the needed goal that would have saved them from a defeat as Nigeria won the match 2-1.

"It was something I never anticipated would come my way this quick after my first call-up to (national) camp where I had to be dropped because of injury while in camp".

The Crotone striker also missed a sitter in the 82nd minute when he failed to hit the target from a cut back from Samuel Kalu.

"I couldn't follow him much when he was playing, but I could see some of his skills from the videos I have seen of him". He represented his country 60 times and played for some of the biggest clubs in Europe. "It was great to represent Nigeria, this is a good step for me in the national team", Kalu concluded.

Weah happy with the players participation in the game to honour him, was said to have given all the players on both side $2,000 each.
