Libya against Cape Verde moved to Egypt

Cairo Military Stadium

Egypt’s Minister of Sport has confirmed that Egyptian authorities have agreed to host the Libyan national team’s match against Cape Verde for 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The match is to be held next Sunday in the Cairo Military Stadium, after the Ministry of Defence agreed to use its own facilities to host the match. Despite the accommodations, a firm stance has been taken and fans will not be permitted to attend the match.

The game will be held in Cairo due to the deteriorating state of security in Libya.

Libya currently lie in 3rd place in their AFCON 2017 qualifying group after losing 1-0 to African giants Morocco in June.

Cape Verde however are top of the group as they dealt minnow São Tomé and Principe a heavy 6-0 defeat.
