Libya wins first CHAN match 3-0 against Equatorial Guinea
The Mediterranean Knights, Libya national football team, beat Equatorial Guinea 3-0 in the opening matches of Group 3 at CHAN on Monday.
Saleh Taher scored the opening goal when he nudged the ball between the legs of a hesitant Cambio in the Equatorial Guinea goal.
Mohamed Aleyat, who set up all three goals, combined with Taher again five minutes later to make it 2-0.
The game was put beyond Equatorial Guinea in the 87th minute when Zakaria Alharash swept onto a ball in the six yard area and struck into the empty net.
Libya will play Nigeria next and Equatorial Guinea will play Rwanda, with both matches scheduled for Friday.
