Saturday, April 20, 2013

ZURICH, Switzerland - FIFA has authorised Libya to host World Cup qualifying matches, saying the country is safe enough for its first international home games since the uprising which ousted Moammar Gadhafi.

"FIFA has decided to reauthorise matches in Libya," the governing body said on Thursday, after the Confederation of African Football previously recommended approval.

Libya will host Congo in Tripoli on June 7 and Togo in Benina, near Benghazi, on June 14.

A previous home qualifier, against Cameroon last June, was played in Sfax, Tunisia. Libya won 2-1.
