Back in the days, I was a huge fan of George Weah, especially when he played for AC Milan. He was also the first and so far the only player from Africa who won the Ballon d'Or (Golden ball) a price for the best player of a year in Europe in 1995. IN the same year he was also chosen as the best player in the World

Nowadays George Weah is the President of Liberia

This match brings his total number of official international matches to 61 and all that at the age of 51!!

George Weah a true legend!!
