Newcastle United have a two week international break with a number of players away with their national squad.

However, one of them has now had to drop out due to an unusual reason.

Only 19, midfielder Mohammed Sangare has made excellent progress in the younger age groups for Newcastle and Liberia called him up for their African Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday.

Liberia facing DR Congo in the group match, the opposition without former NUFC defender Chancel Mbemba as the Porto player is injured.

As for  Mohammed Sangare, he has had to withdraw over fears he wouldn’t be able to get back into the UK after international duty.

The 19 year old unable to travel because he does not have a copy of his UK residence permit.

Mohammed Sangare was born in Liberia but has lived in England since the age of 14.

Altogether, Liberia called up 13 overseas players and Sangare wasn’t alone, as striker Terrance Tisdell who now plays in Portugal has also had to drop out to not having a residence permit to hand.

Liberia Manager Sebastian Collins:

“Mohammed Sangare (from Newcastle United) has a valid Liberian passport but if he travels to Monrovia without his residence permit, getting back (into the UK) will give him problems.

“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.”

    Hasn’t MA got great grandparents from Liberia? Maybe he could go instead.

    It would be a pity if he wasn’t allowed back in. Wouldn’t it?
