The Mediterranean Knights tactician says he is more comfortable to face the Super Eagles ahead of next month’s African qualifier clash

Libya coach Adel Amrouche says he has ‘experience to play’ against Nigeria ahead of next month’s two-legged 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification clash.

The Mediterranean Knights held South Africa to a 0-0 draw in Saturday’s encounter in Durban as they stayed put on the top of Group E after garnering four points from two games.

With the Super Eagles’ next up, the tactician is unmoved about the pedigree of the three-time African champions as he is confident that his side will silence Gernot Rohr’s side in October.

“Believe me I prefer to play Nigeria than South Africa because I have the experience to play against them,” Amroache told media.  

“South Africa is a fantastic team and have fantastic players and it’s not easy to play against them.

“For me, I’m ready for Nigeria; if they want we can play both games in Nigeria; they believe in juju and we believe in God.”
