Libya’s Algerian coach, Adel Amrouche, is confident his team will be well prepared to face the Super Eagles when both sides clash in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month in Nigeria.
Amrouche’s side currently lead Group E with four points from two games after their confidence-boosting draw against South Africa at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
Libya had defeated Seychelles 5-1 in their opening group game 14 months ago.
Former Kenya coach Amrouche adds that the South African clash was a tougher game he used to prepare for the Super Eagles.
“When we’re back home we’ll find a DVD and see what happened. I brought something new, it’s not easy,” Amrouche revealed in his post match interview after the game against Bafana Bafana on Saturday.
“Believe me, I would rather play Nigeria than Bafana, because I have experince playing against Nigeria and for me Bafana have fantastic players and its not easy playing South Africa.
“For me, I’m ready for Nigeria. If they want to play the two games in Nigeria it’s ok. If they (Nigeria) believe on juju too much or God but its not easy to play South Africa I stayed long night thinking of how to stop Percy Tau, Keagan Dolly, Vilakazi and Vincent Pule and those that did not play today.”
The Mediterranean Knights have played their home games in the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Mali, Egypt and Tunisia over the last five years due to the unrest in Libya
