The north Africans have been impressive in their qualifying campaign under Amrouche with 5-1 victory over Seychelles and a goalless draw against South Africa.

The result ensured their position at the top of Group E with four points ahead of their illustrious opponents the Bafana Bafana, on goal difference, Nigeria with three points and Seychelles with zero point.

Libya are expected to arrive Nigeria on Thursday ahead of their tie with Gernot Rohr’s men on Saturday at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
