Libya Accept To Play Eagles On October 13 In Uyo


Another dramatic development has cropped up in the oscillating issue about dates and venues for Nigeria’s upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Libya, as the North African country appears ready to play the matches on October 13 and 16.

Although Confederation of Afrircan Football (CAF) have been reluctant in ac cepting a request by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to have the first leg shifted to October 13 in Uyo, gathered that Libya are willing to accept the shift.

That, though, would also mean having to move the second leg in Tunisia to another date, but Lybia Football Federation (LFF) are again ready to do just that, meaning the reverse fixture could now hold on Tuesday, October 16.

The final word on all this, though, is expected from CAF, while Tunisia Football Fedration (NFF) also need to be carried along, as they will provide logistics fror a smooth organisation of the second leg on their home soil.

However, in a switf move to take advantage of Libya’s readiness to be flexible on the matter, the NFF have qucikly written to all bodies involved in the matches, to formally and officially inform them of the proposed changes.
