CAF confirms Libya-Algeria venue
CAF has authorised Libya to play their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying home match in Morocco, precisely in the city of Casablanca, thus putting an end to speculations about the exact venue of the Libya-Algeria September 9 clash.
The football federations representing both teams had agreed for a change of venue from Tripoli following continued instability in the North African country. The Moroccan FA had also given Libya the green light to play on its soil.
Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic earlier cancelled plans for a friendly match on August 15, deciding instead to hold a workshop with his players at the national technical centre in Sidi Moussa, near Algiers.
Libya have also announced a workshop in Tripoli to be topped off with a friendly match against a local side.
Libya were also made to play their home game against Cameroon in Sfax, Tunisia during the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying, with the Mediterranean Knights triumphing 2-1.
