Libya's national soccer team has lost 0-4 to Nigeria as part of the third round of AFCON 2019 qualifiers.

The match took place in Nigeria on Saturday.

Libya's side was trying to reach the Nigerian box and venture scoring an early goal, but things went the other way around as Nigeria scored the first goal at the minute four on penalty by Odion Ighalo.

Ighalo managed to score two more goals at the minutes 58 and 69 to own himself a hat-trick, while the fourth goal was scored by Samuel Kalu at the last minute.

Nigeria has now six points to become second in Group E, while Libya became third with four points.

South Africa topped Group E by winning over Seychelles 6-0 to earn 7 points, leaving Seychelles in the bottom of the group with zero points.
