The team would be camped at the Ibom Hotel and Golf Resort with three players and the two assistant coaches already on the ground for the game.

Isaac Success, Semi Ajayi, and William Troost-Ekong are the early arrivals with some of the players reportedly having difficulties connecting flights from Lagos to Uyo.

Nigeria, third on the Group E standing in the qualification race, with three points from two games, will play the return leg of the game three days after the first leg.

Libya are the leaders of the group, having gathered four points from two games with South Africa trailing them on the same number of points but with an inferior goals difference.
