Liberia were beaten 2-0 by the Super Eagles last Friday in Lagos.
Their win over CAR in the second round brought their campaign back on track, and they sit second in Group C game on Monday.

With four minutes left in the game, Sherman emerged the hero by grabbing what proved to be the winner for his team.
The win took the Liberians to second place on three points behind leaders Nigeria while Cape Verde and Central African Republic are third and fourth respectively.
