Coach Salisu Yusuf disclosed that the team’s focus was to top the group and remain in Tanger with a win over Equatorial Guinea, who are already out of the tournament following their back to back loss to Libya and Rwanda.

“We are thinking about the next match against Equatorial Guinea. Our goal is to win the remaining match to stay here in Tanger,” said Yusuf.

He said that the game against Libya was difficult, adding however, that his wards worked hard to shatter the confidence of the Libyans.

Sunday Faleye scored the winner in the 79th minute from Osas Okoro’s corner kick.

“It was a very difficult victory. We faced a very good team in Libya, who created a lot of problems on the ground. Our opponents were more comfortable than we, backed by their victory against Equatorial Guinea in their opening match.

“We advocated a strategy to close spaces. We studied the Libyan team. We changed our strategy compared to the first match.
