The Libyan Football Federation has recently parted ways with Jamal Jafari who was its President after a vote of no confidence against him with Vice President Abdulhakim Al-Shalmani taking up the role in the interim.Bafana Bafana had no answers to Libya’s resolute defence when they met at Moses Mabhida last year in a match that ended goalless. Stuart Baxter’s men have won two and drawn three of their five games so far, conceding only one goal in the process. Their most disappointing result was the goalless draw at Seychelles after smashing them 6-0 in Johannesburg.Darren Keet or Ronwen Williams will start in goals in the absence of Itumeleng Khune and I think either of the two goalkeepers will be good enough to compete at this level. It should be interesting to see whether Keagan Dolly and Bongani Zungu start as they face late fitness tests. Up front, the team has Percy Tau, Lebogang Maboe, Thembinkosi Lorch and Lebo Mothiba who are doing superbly for their respective clubs at the moment.Bafana Bafana travelled to Tunisia this past weekend to allow the squad ample time to acclimatise. The officials must be applauded for carefully co-ordinating this gruelling 21-hour trip via Frankfurt, Germany. In terms of FIFA rankings, South Africa are 71st while Libya are 105th.

For Libya to secure a place in this year’s continental tournament, they need nothing short of a victory in a home game they will play on foreign soil due to political unrest.The Libyans would have loved to play such a crucial match in their own backyard but they must be accustomed to staging international tournaments in their neighbouring countries since they were banned from hosting them in 2011. The authorities have made traveling arrangements for 3000 fans with Tunisia open to allowing up to 10 000 Libyans to attend the match.The Mediterranean Knights currently lie third in Group E standings and they’re two points behind their opponents which means they need a victory to leapfrog them into second place and qualify for this year’s AFCON. Newly-appointed coach Fawzi Al-Essawi humiliated Seychelles 8-1 in his first qualifier in charge of the side.
Liverpool Liverpool rampage too much for Man City! – Oxlade-Chamberlain Dom Farrell Last updated 1 year ago 03:19 1/15/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Liverpool Manchester City Liverpool v Manchester City Premier League The England international opened the scoring at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s side became the first team to beat City in the league this season Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain credited a second-half “rampage” from Liverpool with ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run in the Premier League.The former Arsenal midfielder set in motion a thrilling 4-3 win for Jurgen Klopp’s men, who responded to Leroy Sane’s equaliser five minutes before half-time by putting City to the sword after the break.Roberto Firmino caught out John Stones to get on the end of Oxlade-Chamberlain’s throughball and dink a finish past Ederson, the first of three goals in a dizzying nine-minute spell, with Sadio Mane and the excellent Mohamed Salah also getting in on the act.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player It meant a first loss in 23 Premier League outings for Pep Guardiola’s side this term, whose heads cleared in the closing stages as substitute Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan set up a grandstand finish.”It’s a nice statement for us. They’ve been brilliant all year, they’re a fantastic side,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain, who felt Liverpool targeted City’s approach of building play from the back to superb effect.”We knew we had what it took if we were 100 per cent at the races.”We know they like to play out from the back and they’re really good at it but we also thrive on a team doing that.”It can play into our hands and it showed when we went on a bit of a rampage after half-time.“The plan was to defend as well as we could all over the pitch and then attack them when we could.”Oxlade-Chamberlain hailed Klopp for encouraging to him to shoot more often after his swiftly taken ninth-minute effort zipped beyond Ederson to bring Anfield to its feet.”I drove through and there was a little gap that opened up,” he explained on Sky Sports . “The manager keeps telling me to shoot and luckily it went in.”After Silva and Gundogan hauled City back into the contest, Sergio Aguero headed into the side-netting in stoppage time, with nerves fraying all around the ground even as the linesman raised his flag.”With the substitution, it was a like we had too much time to think about the set-piece,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain, having seen the backline reshuffled as Ragnar Klavan was introduced in place of Mane.”It was a little bit nerve-wracking but thankfully it didn’t go in.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web read more
