Butler Holds First Training Session in Egypt

Liberia head coach Peter Butler and technical staff held their first training session at the Borg El Arab Stadium on 29 September.

The training began at 18:30GMT (8:30PM local time) at the venue of the match with all the players except Van Dave Harmon, who has returned to FK Laci in Albania.

Liberia Football Association President Mustapha Raji, who is head of delegation, Deputy Sports Minister Andy Quamie and Nimba Kwado President Tomah Seh Floyd, Jr. watched the entire session.

Butler told LFA media he will hold a light/recovery morning session before the friendly match with Egypt at 18:00GMT (8:00PM local time and 6:00PM Liberian time) at the Borg El Arab Stadium on 30 September.

He is using the match to prepare for back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde in October.

Butler is unable to invite foreign-based players because the FIFA window, which obligates/mandates clubs to release their players called up for international duties, runs from 3-13 October.

The delegation returns to Monrovia on 2 October.
