It’s a fact that the senior national team of Liberia has a goalkeeper crisis as in four matches played so far in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers, three goalkeepers have been used with seven goals conceded and the problem of dealing with crosses seems to be their major hurdle.
While the Lone Star suffers in such category, it’s a paradox as international shostopper Melvin King is in the international wilderness.Plying his trade currently with Stella of Adjemi in the top flight of the Ivory Coast, the 6ft 2ins goalkeeper is certainly an experienced campaigner who made his debut for country in 2007 and was first choice in the 2010 qualifier under German Coach Antoine Hey where he went against the Gambia, Senegal and Algeria.
The former Invincible Eleven (IE), disbanded Shoes FC and BUSA goalkeeper also styled for Ghanaian clubs Ashanti Gold and Hasaacas Sikondi as well as Ivorian club Sewe sports as he has Sebring tested and can be trusted.
King was also first choice goalkeeper of the Monrovia FC team that represented Liberia in the Gothia and Dana Cup betweenn1997 and 1999 in Sweden and Denmark at U-13,U-14 and U-15 levels and is a goalkeeper who has being showing consistency in the Ghanaian and Ivorian top flights as there is a need to invite him for the crucial clash with Zimbabwe Warriors later this month in the Afcon qualifier.
