The match was arranged by Liberia to retire the no 14 shirt made famous by Weah during his playing days.

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

Flooding risks are also causing worries over the more than 300 wild horses living on North Carolina's coasts. The surge won't be as bad as it potentially could have been, however, and the winds won't be as strong.

Weah, who scored a landslide victory in presidential elections last December, is the only African footballer to win the world and European awards.

John Ogu, Super Eagles midfielder, says he is happy to have captained the team in Tuesday's worldwide friendly against Liberia.

In 2004, he was named by Pelé in the Federation Internationale de Football Association 100 list of the world's greatest living players.

Liberia ended up on the wrong end of a 2-1 defeat - this all coming on the very same night that Weah's 18-year-old son, Timothy, started for the U.S. in their game against Mexico in Nashville.
