Libya vs South Africa (1-2) 2019 AFCON qualifier

2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier between Libya and South Africa got underway last night at 19:00 South African time.

The second half saw South Africa get into the game a bit more. There were many runs in behind the Libya back line as Libya looked to play high in attempts to get a goal.

Percy Tau opened the scoring with a beautiful taken shot from the edge of the 18 area in the 49th minute.

Libya was awarded a penalty after South African goalkeeper Keet foul. The penalty was converted in the 64th minute and the score was 1-1.

Percy tau completed his brace in the 69th minute to give South Africa the lead yet again.

The game ended Libya 1 and South Africa 2.
