Libya head coach Abdel Amrouche is expecting a tough match against Nigeria in Uyo.

The two teams will clash in two 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification Group E matches later this month.

Amrouche indicated that Nigeria’s Super Eagles will be hard to beat, when they clash in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State on October 12.

"God willing, we will satisfy the Libyan public in the next game despite the difficulty," Amrouche told the media at a press conference.

"Everyone is committed, and everyone answered the call to gather at the camp for players who are not associated with official matches with their clubs, we are waiting for the rest."

According to Van Guard Nigeria, the Algeria tactician added that only can God save his side when they take on the Super Eagles in Uyo.

The Super Eagles are set to start training for their first ever competitive game against Libya on Tuesday.

The players are expected to report at the Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort in Uyo latest Monday.
