Venue change for Libya-Togo qualifier

Due to the situation in Benghazi, the forthcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifier between hosts Libya and Togo will now be played on 14 June at Tripoli Stadium, Tripoli, at 18.00 (local time).

FIFA, in consultation with the Libyan Football Federation, confirmed the decision following the latest security incidents in Benghazi, where the match had originally been scheduled to take place at Benina Martyrs Stadium.

On Friday, Tripoli played host to Libya’s first competitive match on home soil since 2010 with a 0-0 result against Congo DR in the second-stage qualifier in the African Zone.
