Libya prepare to play Cape Verde


Libya’s national football team is preparing in Cairo with the Spanish coach, Javier Clemente, for the match against Cape Verde on September 03 in (group F) of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

All of the players listed by the Spanish coach are present in the Cairo-hosted training camp except for Abdelsalam Al-Fitouri, and Ahmed Al-Turbi, who are both injured.

The Libyan Football Federation decided earlier this month that it is going play all its home matches in the qualifications in Egypt as Libya remains banned to play at its stadiums.
