Super Eagles beat Salah led Egypt in AFCON 2021 opener

The Super Eagles of Nigeria put up a stellar performance to beat the Pharoah’s of Egypt in their opening AFCON 2021 game.

It was indeed a brilliant strike from Kelechi Iheanacho, that saw out the game and gave the West Africans a well-deserved lead.

Egypt had been tipped by pundits to be victorious, this was largely due to their star man, Salah, making the starting XI.

But a tactical masterclass from the Super Eagles interim coach Augustine Eguavoen, saw them dominate the affair.

Ndidi and Aribo dominated the midfield, and the attackers remained a huge threat all through the game.

Salah was limited to just one shot, missed a big chance, as he failed to carry the team as anticipated by many.

On this great and professional tactical display by Nigeria, do you think they can go on to win the tournament?
