Libya loses 0-1 to Tunisia in 2018 World Cup qualifier


The Libyan national team lost its second match in Group A at the 2018 World Cup qualifiers to Tunisia 0-1 on Friday at the Omar Hamadi Stadium in Algeria.

Wahbi Al-Khaziri scored the goal for Tunisia at the minute 50 on a penalty that saw Libya’s Ali Salama receive the red card.

In the first half, Libya scored a goal but the Kenyan referee cancelled it saying it was an offside, though sports analysts said it was 100% right.

The match was the firs for the new local coach Jalal Damja after he succeeded the Spanish Javier Clemente.
