Libya’s national team hander, Omar El Maryami, has revealed that he has a dossier of the Nigerian side.
According to Maryami: “We’ve had a very good start to the competition.
It was important to win the first match.
“I would like to thank the local fans who supported us throughout the match against Equatorial Guinea.
“They motivated our players, who like such atmospheres in the stands.
“The match against Nigeria will be very difficult because Nigeria is a big name in African football.
“This is a very important game for us because victory will seal our qualification.
“We won the CHAN in 2014 and we want to replicate that performance.
“I have an idea about this Nigerian team after their first match against Rwanda.
“I even know some players like Anthony Okpotu, who had a stint with Libyan side, Al Ittihad.
“The players are ready, focused on the game and want to win.”
The side’s captain, Mohamed Nashnush, also said: “Our objective against Nigeria is the three points.
“Our first goal, winning the opening match, has already been achieved.
“It will be more difficult because we are going to have a stronger opponent compared to Equatorial Guinea.
“We will approach all the games with the same state of mind and objective.
“We also want to stay in Tangiers for the quarter-final to avoid a trip to another venue.
“I don’t know much about this Nigerian team.”
