Libya coach, Adel Amrouche, is raising so much dust ahead of their October clash with Nigeria in Kaduna. The coach is very sure his team will be well prepared to face the Super Eagles when both sides clash in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month.
And coach Amrouche appears to have very good reason to be boastful. The Libyans are currently atop Group E with four points from two games after their draw against South Africa at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday. It happened just as Nigeria defeated Seychelles 3-0 in Victoria to regain a fight towards the 2019 finals.
Libya had defeated Seychelles 5-1 in their opening group game as hosts.
Amrouche told the media after the match on Saturday the South African clash has been used to prepare for the Super Eagles. He claimed the South Africans are tougher.
He said, “When we’re back home we’ll find a DVD and see what happened. I brought something new, it’s not easy. Believe me, I would rather play Nigeria than Bafana, because I have experience playing against Nigeria and for me Bafana have fantastic players and it’s not easy playing South Africa.
“For me, I’m ready for Nigeria. If they want to play the two games in Nigeria it’s ok. If they (Nigeria) believe on juju too much or God but it’s not easy to play South Africa I stayed long night thinking of how to stop Percy Tau, Keagan Dolly, Vilakazi and Vincent Pule and those that did not play today.”
