The Super Eagles of Nigeria kicked off their campaign with a victory against Egypt at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria entered the second half against the Pharaohs with 1 – 0 courtesy of Kelechi Iheanacho’s sublime effort in the 33rd minutes.
Kelechi Iheanacho also known as ‘Senior man Kels’ was named the man of the match.
Nigeria has now won their first game under interim coach Eguavoen who said during post-match interview:
“My first thing was to win the game and keep Salah off the ball.”
“We will try to play every game with all seriousness.”
Despite Mohamed Salah taking part, the talismanic Egyptian was somewhat quiet so far.
The Super Eagles will now face Sudan on Saturday, January 15th, 2022 by 05:00pm.
