New Libya squad debuts at AFCON

A sense of normality returns in part for Libyans as new national squad begin their AFCON campaign.

    Libya's national football team is making its first appearance after democracy protests ousted Muammar Gaddafi's government.

    On Saturday, they play an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique in the Egyptian capital Cairo in a new white kit, which marks a break with the green colour associated with the old Gaddafi regime.

    The Libyans have been unable to play at home since the uprising began in February but their AFCON debut will open a new sporting chapter.
