The Flames had the honour of meeting Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at her official residence in Monrovia on Wednesday.
That was not all. The Flames got a morale boost ahead of their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final qualification round match against Ghana on Saturday as the Liberian leader gave them $3 100 [about K833 000], which the Flames delegation shared.
FAM commercial manager Casper Jangale confirmed Flamesâ€™ audience with Sirleaf.
â€œShe invited them to State House and gave them $120 each and for a delegation of 30, it translated to $3 100. It was just a presidential gesture,â€ said Jangale.
Malawi President Joyce Banda has always idolised her Liberia counterpart who is considered one of the most powerful women on the continent.
The Flames travelled to Liberia for a strength-testing match which they lost 1-0 on Tuesday at Samuel Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia.
The match was part of the two teamsâ€™ preparations for this coming weekendâ€™s Africa Cup of Nations final qualification round first legs in which the Flames face Ghana while Liberia will host the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
