The indomitable Lions, will play against Libya’s Mediterranean Knights on Tuesday, November 21st, in Benghazi, at 5pm, Cameroon time. This match is part of the first round of qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.

The question on everyone’s mind is: Will Cameroon maintain her supremacy over Libya?

Coach Rigobert Song and his team have a clear mission for this game: to secure another victory and maintain their position as leaders of Group D. Cameroon has faced Libya seven times before, with Cameroon winning four games, drawing twice, and losing once.

The first encounter between the two teams took place in 1982 and ended in a goalless draw. The most recent match was in September 2012, when Cameroon defeated Libya 1-0. In total, Cameroon has scored seven goals against Libya and conceded only two in all their previous encounters.

As they meet for the eighth time, Libya will be eager to secure a clear victory, as the stakes for qualifying for the prestigious World Cup are high. The team that finishes first in the group qualifies directly, while the second-placed team goes into the playoffse

Both teams will be fully focused on winning to avoid the stress of the playoffs. Cameroon started their World Cup qualifiers campaign with a convincing 3-0 victory over Mauritius. Despite playing in Libya’s home ground in Benghazi, captain Zambo Anguissa and his teammates are expected to perform well and not disappoint the fans.

For coach Rigobert Song, this will be his first time facing Libya as a coach. During his playing career as a defender, he did his best to prevent Libya from scoring in four games between 2000 and 2006. Now, as the head coach of Cameroon, he faces a new challenge.

 Will he start his journey on the right foot by defeating Libya in Benghazi? Justait and see!
