Confederation of Africa football has appointed Democratic Republic of Congo’s Jean Jacques Ndala Ngambo as the center referee for the 2019 African Cup of Nations Group E clash between Nigeria and Libya.
This will be the first time Ngambo will be officiating a match involving Nigeria.
The showdown is expected to hold at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna on October 12.
CAF also named Oliver Safari Kebene and Nabina Blaise Sebutu to serve as assistant referees one and two respectively to Ngambo.
Meanwhile, CAF has also in the same vein announced Joshua Bondo of Botswana as the centerman for the return leg fixture against the Mediterranean Knights at a yet to be named venue in Tunisia on October 15.
Bondo was in charge when Nigeria defeated Zambia 1-0 in a 2018 World Cup qualifying fixture in Uyo in 2017.
Oamogetse Godisamang and Meschaki Medupi are expected to act as assistant referees one and two in the match.
Libya tops Group E with four points from two matches, while Nigeria occupy the third position with three points behind South Africa who have four points. Seychelles sit at the bottom with no point.
