Libya will host Cameroon behind closed doors in Tunisia on Sunday in their second World Cup qualifier because of security concerns.

Tunisian authorities have decided to keep fans away from the clash at the Taieb Mhiri Stadium in the city of Sfax.

“We have been informed that the match would be played behind closed doors,” said Cameroon football federation media officer Linus Pascal Fouda.

“Despite protests from the Libyan side, the Tunisian Federation which bears the responsibility of organising the match, hinted that it’d take no chances on its territory with Libyan supporters deemed ‘uncontrollable’.”

FIFA moved the venue of the clash from Tripoli to Sfax following continued political instability in Libya.

Libya are second in African Qualifying Group I with one point after holding Togo to a 1-1 draw in Lome last weekend, while Cameroon are leading the group with three points following their 1-0 win over DR Congo.
