The Liberia national football team, nicknamed the Lone Stars, is the national team of Liberia and is controlled by the Liberia Football Association. Although the country produced the 1995 FIFA World Player of the Year, George Weah (the first and, so far, the only African to receive that honor), they have failed to transfer the individual success to the team stage. Weah is seen as the "patron saint" of the Liberian team; not only has he played for and coached the side, he also spent a lot of his own money on the team.

Liberia has never reached the World Cup, although they did come a point short of qualifying in 2002. They have twice qualified for the African Cup of Nations - 1996 and 2002. They also came within 1 point of qualifying in 1998.
