Already 1-0 at the Africa Cup: Nigeria wins the squatter against Egypt

At the Africa Cup, Nigeria has manipulated the opening game in Group D. Thanks to a goal from Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho, Nigeria won the top match against Mohamed Salah’s Egypt.

The Africa Cup had not been a goal-fest until now, with only 8 goals in 7 matches. In that respect, the squatter between Nigeria and Egypt brought little improvement.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah played a pale game and was unable to give the Nigerian defense enough trouble. The only goal was scored on the half hour by Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who struck hard from just within the box.

It was already the 6th 1-0 result at the African Cup in 8 matches. Only in Cameroon-Burkina Faso (2-1) were more than once scored. Algeria-Sierra Leone finished 0-0.
