Super Eagles hope to beat Libya both home and away to get their 2019 AFCON qualifying campaign firmly back on track, according to midfielder John Ogu.

“We know we have two difficult games against a good Libyan side, who are top of the group, but we are looking forward to them,” he said.

“We will start by giving all we have so to win the two games against them.”

Libya will be without coach Adel Amrouche after he quit over unpaid salaries, but Ogu insisted the Eagles will not be concerned with the internal problems of the North Africans.

“We won’t be carried away by their problems,” he maintained.

“These things happen in football.

“We just want to remain focused because our target is to get the three points on Saturday before we start thinking of the next game on Tuesday.”

Libya are top of Group E with four points from two matches, South Africa are second also on four points, while Nigeria are third having recorded three points.
