JOHANNESBURG: Libya stunned former gold medallists Nigeria 2-0 on Wednesday in the first leg of a 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games second round qualifier. Montenegro-based Zakaria Alharaish scored after six and 69 minutes in a match moved from Libya to Ben Guerdane in neighbouring Tunisia for security reasons. Nigeria suffered a major blow just before half-time when goalkeeper Adamu Abubakar was sent off for handling outside the box. The teams meet again on Monday in Asaba with Nigeria seeking to avoid a shock early exit. (AFP)
