Defeated 2-1 in Sao Tome in the first leg of their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers’ Group F double clash last Wednesday, Libya bounced back with a 4-0 thrashing of the islanders in Tunisia in the reverse fixture this Monday.

Following a goalless opening half, the Mediterranean Knights stepped up a gear after the break, with MC Oran striker Mohamed Zubya completing a hat-trick and midfielder Osama Abdusalam joining the party with his side’s third goal.

The result saw Libya put an end to a three-game losing streak in the qualifying campaign, while bagging their first points in the competition.

However, they remain tied with bottom of the log Sao Tome on 3 points in Group F, six points adrift of leaders Morocco who have a game in hand.

The Libyans will host Morocco in June, before travelling to Cape Verde in September, while Sao Tome and Principe are still to play Cape Verde at home and the Atlas Lions away.
