Libya goalkeeper Muhammad Nashnoush has been ruled out of the team’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game with Nigeria.

Nashnoush will miss the clash on Tuesday after he was disqualified for a second yellow card in the Mediterranean Knights’ in last week’s clash with the West Africans.

The goalkeeper was booked for a challenge on Odion Ighalo in the box which resulted in a penalty against his side.

And with a second booking in three qualifiers, he would be missing out of action as the three-time African champions face his side in Tunisia.

Nigeria are second in the group with six points from three games while South Africa lead the standings have gathered seven points from the same number of matches.
