Newcastle midfielder Mo Sangare forced to pull out of Liberia squad

Newcastle United midfielder Mo Sangare has been forced to pull out of a Liberia call-up.

Sangare was called up, but has lost his UK residence permit.

The Toon youngster was born in Liberia but has lived in the UK since age 14.

"Sangare has a valid Liberian passport but if he travels to Monrovia without his [residence] permit, getting back will give him problem," LFA manager Sebastian Collins explained.

“We thought it would be in the best interest of all parties that he secures his document before coming to Monrovia.

“He tried to fast-track the issuance of his residence permit, which went missing - but it will be issued next week."
