AFCON 2012: Libya Vs Zambia (2 - 2) On January 25th 2012 by mukina2: 10:15pm On Jan 24, 2012
The Mediterranean Knights’ first appearance at an Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) since 2006 didn’t go according to plan on Saturday. Despite starting relatively well against co-hosts Equatorial Guinea, Libya lost their composure and struggled mightily to create chances until after Javier Balboa’s sublime finish on 87 minutes.

Now it will be up to coach Marcos Paqueta to find a solution to his team’s attacking troubles, specifically how to get his imposing centre-forward, Ahmed Zuway, more involved.

It will be an uphill task against a Zambian side that completely changed the complexion of the group by stunning Senegal with two quick first-half goals before resisting the Teranga Lions’ offensive armada.

Needless to say, Libya don’t have as much going forward as the west African do and the service to Zuway will need to be much more precise against the organised and often ruthless Chipolopolo.

In his post-match press conference, Herve Renard was quick to point out that Emmanuel Mayuka and Rainford Kalaba’s goals were a direct translation of his strategy to play balls in behind Senegal’s tall and athletic defence. The Libyans won’t  pose the same physical challenge but, on their day, the north Africans could cause problems for a Zambian side that they faced in qualifying.
