Mohammed Sangare (born 28 December 1998) is a Liberian footballer who plays for English club Newcastle United as a midfielder.

Early and personal life[edit]

Sangare was born in Liberia and moved to England at the age of 14.[3]

Club career[edit]

Sangare has played club football in England for Accrington Stanley and Newcastle United.[3] He was promoted to Newcastle's first-team in July 2019.[4]

International career[edit]

Sangare received his first call-up to the Liberia national team in August 2018, for upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification matches.[3] He had to withdraw from the squad twice as he was awaiting his UK residence permit to be re-issued, meaning he was unable to travel.[5][6] He was recalled by the Liberian senior national team in March 2019.[7]

He made his debut for the Liberia national football team on 24 March 2019 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against DR Congo, coming on as a 73rd-minute substitute for Allen Njie.[8]
