The Libyan national football team lost to Algeria 0-1 in the opening match of African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2023 that is held in Algeria.
Algeria's only goal came from a penalty in the second half with Libya putting a modest performance.
Libya still has two matches in Group A against Mozambique and Ethiopia. The two first teams will qualify for the quarterfinals, so Libya needs two wins to avoid waiting for other matches' results.
