Informed Liberia international striker of the moment, Francis ‘Grandpa’ Forkey Doe, who plies his trade in the Malaysian Premiership with NS Matrix return to the senior national team of Liberia, the Lone Star is a welcomed development and will further sharpen the striking propensity of the red, white and blue outfit. Fresh from winning the Golden Boot in Malaysia, the second in his career, with the first being in 2012, the Christmas Day born net buster can certainly help the national team to be more innocuous in the attacking third.
Forkey Doe has always been a moody attacker with a tiger posture, bubbling status, technically adroit and has a cool head in front goal.
He has always been a good customer in front goal and depending on how he links up with the ferocious front duo of William Jebor and Sam Johnson; the Lone Star could be a handful in such area of the park. With four international goals under his belt, two of which were via his blistering burst of pace combined with sublime skills against Cameroon and Senegal at the AmadouAhidjo and Leopold Senghor stadiums in Yaounde and Dakar respectively, ‘Grandpa’ has always been in the thick of things for Liberia. He might have had some troubling and rather controversial moments though, albeit, he is one of the best of his generation.
Congratulations to Francis ‘Grandpa’ Forkay Doe for the virtuoso achievement of winning another Golden Boot as goal scoring is the most difficult thing in the game since it is the ultimate and the statistics that matters most, something that comes to him naturally.
