– Super Eagles will this afternoon face Libya in 2019 AFCON qualifier in Uyo

Nigeria are occupying third position in Group E, while Libya are topping

– Mikel Obi will not face Libya and Alex Iwobi is expected to play his role

Nigeria who are three time African champions will face Libya on Saturday, October 13, in their third 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo.

The Super Eagles did not participate in the last two editions of the Nations Cup, and their qualification for the 2019 edition is still dicey unless they beat Libya for them to go back on track.

Libya are topping the Group with four points together with South Africa, while Nigeria are occupying third position on the standings with three points.

Nigeria’s last game in the 2019 AFCON qualifier was a win over Seychelles, while Libya forced hosts South Africa to a draw in their own match.

Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel will be missing this match, and news also came out last night that defensive midfielder Ogenyi Onazi will also not be playing because of injury.

Libya on the other hand are unperturbed with injury, but they will only missed their ex coach Adel Amrouche who resigned four days to this game.

Nigeria and Libya have met three times in all competitions with Super Eagles winning two games and lost once against their opponents.

Meanwhile, 4pm is the kick-off for this match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Libya, and we will bring you the live updates of the encounter.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Super Eagles gaffer Gernot Rohr made it clear that he likes eating pounded yam and vegetable soup as his players prepare to face Libya on Saturday, October 13, in Uyo.

The 65-year-old German football manager made this known in an interview he granted in Uyo which was posted to you-tube.
