AFCON Qualifiers: Libya To Host Nigeria In Tunisia, Report Says


The Libyan Football Federation, LFF, has chosen Tunisia as venue for their 2019 AFCON qualifier against Nigeria’s Super Eagles on October 14, according to a report in Libya Observer.

But the report said the LFF is yet to specify the stadium to hold the match.

The reverse fixture will take place in Kaduna on October 10.

Adel Amrouche, Libya’s coach, who has Algerian descent, reportedly tried to convince the LFF to play the home game against Nigeria in Algeria instead of Tunisia, in order to gain support in his country. However, the LFF has decided otherwise.

It was earlier reported that the match will be played in Algeria.

Libya and South Africa top Group E on four points, though the North Americans have better goal difference. The Super Eagles are third with three points.
