President George Weah rewards Super Eagles $2000-a-man

Former World Footballer of the Year George Weah rolled back the years with a surprise appearance for Liberia in their friendly with Nigeria - 16 years after his last global outing.

Weah was the victor of the 1995 Fifa Player of the Year for his exploits with Paris Saint-Germain.

Although President George Weah failed to score against the Super Eagles as his nation lost 1-2 in front of their fans, but his presence on the pitch has received encomiums from football fans.

The game had been arranged to honor him and retire his number 14 shirt.

Two first-half goals through Henry Onyekuru and Simeon Nwankwo sealed the win for Gernot Rohr's men despite a late penalty from Liberia's No.9.

The lack of accurate of documentation means worldwide footballers older than Weah may have played but the former AC Milan and PSG star becomes the oldest on record.
