The match commissioner, Andy Quame from Liberia, as well as South African Dan Van Vuuren (security officer) and Malian Koman Coulibaly (referee assessor) will also arrive in Uyo on Friday.    

Nigeria will put her strongest foot forward right from kick off against Libya’s Mediterranean Knights in Saturday evening’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo.

Victory is key for Nigeria if they are to stay in contention for a place in next year’s AFCON in Cameroon.
