Ahead of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers against Nigeria, the Libyan Football Federation (LFF) have reportedly made a U-turn on their decision to stage the clash in Algeria, after confirming it will now be played in Tunisia, AOIFootball.com reports.

According to reports by Libya’s Alwasat, the decision of Coach Abel Amrouche to have the game in his native Algeria was rejected, with the Libyan federation likely to pick the Stade Chedly-Zouiten Stadium in Tunis which hosted Libya’s matchday one triumph against Seychelles last year.

Both nations will first meet in Nigeria on October 10, with the Nigerian Football Federation also yet to name a venue for the clash before the Eagles travel to Tunisia for the return leg.

The Mediterranean Knights currently lead Group E, with four points after two matches, with Nigeria 3rd on three points from the same number of matches.
