AFCON 2019 Qualifiers: NFF confirms venue for Super Eagles against Libya

The Super Eagles will play their next 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium Kaduna.

Nigeria, three-time African champions, will battle the Maghreb nation on October 10 as they battle for a place in Cameroon next year.

According to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), contrary to reports, the team’s head coach, Gernot Rohr, has not rejected the venue due to its small size.

“I want to inform you that there is no issue about the venue for our match against Libya because we have decided to play at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium Kaduna,” Complete Sports quoted a source at the NFF as saying.

“Coach Rohr is satisfied with the facilities he inspected and he did not reject it as reported.

“We have informed CAF that the venue of the match with Libya will be Kaduna and we are not going back on that.

“Whatever flaws observed during the inspection of the stadium will be put in place before the end of the month.”

Libya are top of the Group E standing for the qualification series with four points from two games.

They are followed by the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on same points from the same number of games who have an inferior goal difference.

Nigeria and Seychelles are third and fourth on three and zero points respectively.
