The coach of the Libya's national football team, Javier Clemente, said that the team is fully prepared for its next match against Egypt in the third round of the African qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Clemente said, in statements to the Libyan news agency that "the Egyptian team's plan is to win at home and draw in Benghazi, and thus ensure qualification by a large percentage." He continued: "We will not play randomly in this confrontation, but we have studied all the strengths and weaknesses of the Egyptian team, and what will happen during the ninety minutes will be completely different from our matches with Gabon and Angola."
Libya sits atop Group F in the qualifiers with six points, followed by the Egyptian team with four points, then Gabon with one point, and the Angolan team at zero.
The Mediterranean Knights will face off against the Pharaohs on Friday at the Burj Al Arab Stadium in Alexandria, with a rematch in Benghazi on October 11.
