Two national players pass FIFA dope test

Monrovia- Liberia (PANA) -- Two players of the Liberian national soccer squad, Lone Star, have passed a dope test administered by FIFA, the world football governing body, press reports said in Monrovia on Wednesday.
Lone Star midfielder Kelvin Sebwe and goalie Morris Browne were declared non-culpable of taking any substance banned by FIFA, according to a fax message to the Liberian FA, quoted in the local press.
The two players were selected at random from the Lone Star to undergo the dope test following the Liberia/Sierra Leone World Cup qualifier 14 July in Freetown.
Liberia won that match 1-0 and ended second to Nigeria in Group B.
FIFA has thanked the Liberian FA for cooperating to facilitate the work of Dr Fouad Azzouzi, a member of the FIFA doping control panel, who conducted the tests.
No Liberian athlete, local or professional, in any discipline has proved positive for any banned substance in a competition.
