2019AFCON Qualifiers: Libya Coach Targets Revenge Against Super Eagles
The interim coach of Libya, Omar Al-Maryami, is confident that his team will get their own pound of flesh against the Super Eagles when both team clash again on Tuesday.
The Mediterranean Knights were walloped 4-0 loss in Uyo on Saturday, but the Libya coach insists that the scoreline is not a function of how good the Nigeria team was but hard luck against the Libya national team.
Al-Maryami, who replaced erstwhile gaffer, Adel Amrouche who resigned five days before the match in Uyo insists that the Knights must attack the Super Eagles to stand a chance of winning.
“We were unlucky not to have scored minutes after we conceded, but this result hasn’t changed anything. We have a good team and we will fight,” Al-Maryami told CSN through an interpreter shortly before they left Uyo for Sfax.
“We have a young squad that is very ambitious. We lost the game due to some little details and the first goal we conceded affected us.
“Unfortunately, we lost three points, but we are sure of taking them back in the second leg, but we must attack the Nigerian team to score.”
Libya are third in the Group E of 2019 AFCON qualifiers with four points from three games, while Nigeria are second with six points from also from three points.
