Libya to play World Cup qualifier in Tunisia

Libya’s match against Cameroon for World Cup qualifying will be

played in the neutral Tunisian city of Sfax and no fans will be

allowed to attend.

The world soccer governing body says the Group I game will be

held on June 10. It will be Libya’s second match in World Cup

qualifying to try to reach the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Soccer was thrown into disarray in Libya following the civil war

that erupted in early 2011 and led to the killing of leader Moammar


Libya’s national team had to play home qualifiers for this

year’s African Cup of Nations in Mali and Egypt and won games to

qualify for the continental championship.
