Omeruo who joined the La Liga side on a season-long loan from dethroned Premier League Champions Chelsea replaced injured Unai Bustinza in victory, which came about thanks to an early strike from Guido Carrillo against Rayo Vallecano.
Afcon winner stated that Libya are
a strong team but has tipped the Super Eagles to emerge victorious because of their pedigree, the players in the squad, sound coaches and the supporters.
"We will be up against a strong Libyan side. But we are the Super Eagles and we have a great squad.
"We will give our all to pick maximum six points from both games. I have confidence in the entire crew.
'"We urge our fans to get behind us and give us all the support. We will not disappoint you all.'' Omeruo said in a statement to the Nigerian Federation.
