Libya on Tuesday picked up an important, 1-0 World Cup qualifying win against Angola in the away match at the November 11 Stadium in the capital Luanda.

A goal by Omar Al-Khouja 43 minutes from time gifted the Mediterranean Knights a vital away win.

The goal kept the Angolan team on alert, trying to find the equalizer before the break, but the Libyan defence managed to keep their net clean throughout the first half.

After the break, Angola pressed hard to score a tie, while the national team sat back and confined itself with counter-attacks holding to their win to the final whistle.

With this win, Libya leads Group F with six points ahead of Egypt with four points while Gabon is in third place with one point and Angola trailing last with zero points.
