The Mediterranean Knights remain top of Group E after they held Bafana to a 0-0 draw at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Amrouche was also pleased with the football on showcase, saying this is the type of football Africa needs.

“Our players had chances to play in this [beautiful] ground, the ambiance. This game tactically is tough game. South Africa is not an easy team. The coach did a good job. I know that but people talk too much,” Amrouche told SuperSport after the match.

“I had time to study his [Stuart Baxter] tactics. But I hope we get to the Afcon and also for South Africa. But for Libya because it’s difficult situation out there. A draw is better than loss.

“I like samba football. This is Africa we need clever players. I’m happy for this draw. They need this happiness in Libya. I didn’t sign in Libya for money. I signed without money. I’m a human being. They need us. I want to thank CAF also for giving us this opportunity to play.

“Football can bring Libya together. I hope I can write my name in the history [of Libya] like I did with Burundi before."
