Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr says he expects a challenging Africa Cup of Nations qualifier rematch against Libya despite trouncing the north Africans at the weekend. Odion Ighalo, the former Watford striker now at Chinese club Changchun Yatai, bagged a hat-trick as Nigeria thrashed Libya 4-0 in the southern town of Uyo on Saturday. They will square up again in Sfax in Tunisia, the adopted home of war-ravaged Libya. Rohr said he expected the Libyans to provide a stiffer challenge as they seek to avenge the heavy loss. “We need a big fighting spirit to beat Libya again,” he insisted.
