  • This Nigeria vs Libya both legs are crucial to both nations. Caf and even FIFA will want Nigeria to qualify because of our pedigree and popularity. Nigeria will pull more crowd to both stadium. So important referees should be appointed and I believe with Pinnick at the top the best will be appointed to officiate the matches.
