Libya lost 1-0 to its host Equatorial Guinea on Sunday evening, at Malabo Stadium, in the fourth round of the qualifiers for the 2022 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Equatorial Guinea dominated the ball for an extended amount of time keeping Libya's defense under pressure throughout the match.

The stalemate was broken in minute 27 after Guinea's Eban Salvador fired a shot.

The Libyan goalkeeper was unable to react in time, and the ball ended in the far side of the net to put Guinea up 1-0.
