Libya has failed to qualify for the Arab Cup 2021 after losing to Sudan 1-0 at the Khalifa International Stadium in the Qatari capital, Doha.

With this loss, Libya bids farewell to the Arab Championship, which will take place next December.

The Libyan team seemed to be short of energy from the start while its opponent held firm and settled in, taking the lead 15 minutes in the first half with a penalty kick by Mohamed Abdel Rahman.

In the second half, the Libyans managed to produce excellent chances and were very close to tying the score, but the time ticked away, and the goals needed never arrived.

Libya is out, and Sudan will join Algeria and Egypt in Group D. The group is awaiting the match between Lebanon and Djibouti to determine the fourth team in the group.
