Nigeria 1-0 Egypt: Kelechi Iheanacho fires Super Eagles to Group D win while Mohamed Salah stumbles.

Even despite the perceived lack of firepower in the Nigeria squad prior to the tournament, the Super Eagles launched their Africa Cup of Nations campaign with relative ease following a dominant win over Egypt.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s first-half goal, a superbly struck half-volley, was enough to see Nigeria through the Group D opener in what a disappointing outing for Egypt.

Moses Simon, Joe Aribo and Iheanacho caused their opposition all manner of problems and should really have added to the scoreline. The Leicester star in particular could well have had a hat-trick had his touch not deserted him.

Still, as impressive as Nigeria were, Egypt saw their forwards flounder.

To blame Mohamed Salah that entirely would be unfair given the lack of service he was offered but the Liverpool star failed to have much impact at all.

Egypt, of course, will still be confident of progressing through to the next round but it is Nigeria and their depleted frontline who made an early statement.

That Aina guy is a REAL baller. Defensively good, offensively superb. Man of the match for me.

Maduka, Ekong and Omeruo surprised (in a good way) me today.

Kelechi's goal is one for the books but he was wasteful in the 2nd half performance

Moses Simon's energy gave Eagles the edge in the last 3rd.

Ndidi is the greatest defensive midfielder in Africa at the moment.

Aribo's work rate needs commendation (plus good assist for the goal).

Everyone played well but there is still a lot of work to be done.

Congrats to Eguavoen and the team.

UP SUPER EAGLES OF NIGERIA.

True that.
We just said the same thing for area here.

He's always attacking and not afraid of one on one with any defender.
He is having a very good game.
The only thing he needs to work more on is the crossing, he made over 6 to 7 crosses well above the 18 box!!

He need to take that aspect easy.
Save for that,
He will be given the MOTM at the end of the match.

UP NIGERIA. [/quote]


[quote author=Raph82
:
You took the exact word out of my mouth, it's been a while I saw eagles play a confident game like this. They were so confident and relaxed. I watched the match without any rise in BP.

You are 101% right about that.
They made us proud as a nation.

Btw,
Bettors in the house,
What was the odd of this match for each country before the it begins?

KingWarri:

3.25 vs 2.60

nurez305:
nigeria 3.10 and Egypt 2.25

Those idiot actually underate Nigeria grin
So, if someone bet with a million naira on Nigeria to win, the person gonna win over 3 million naira.
Wow!

Nice one for kelechi iheanacho, Moses Simon showed a great d dexterity with the ball from the left flanks, but we had a poor striking connect to get the ball into the net.
We had a good game and will do better in the next game.
