Liberian Soccer Legend Dies Homeless in Newark: George Sacko died at a Newark, N.J., hospital Sept. 17 "homeless, penniless and almost anonymously. But a half-century ago and an ocean away, George McDonald Sacko, aka 'Wizard,' had a country at his feet." The Star-Ledger tells the tale of the Liberian soccer team captain in the '60s.
