Nigeria will play at home with Egypt in the 1st round of the African Cup of Nations. The match will take place on January 11.
The Nigeria national team is the traditional favorite of all African competitions. “Super Eagles” are now logically ranked among the contenders for victory in the tournament.
With the likes of Victor Osimen and Odion Igalo, Nigerians have a lot to look forward to. By the way, Nigeria won their group in qualifying for the World Cup.
And even if the Nigerians are not the main favorites of the African Cup of Nations now, they will certainly have their weighty word. Moreover, the starting match with the Egyptians will just give answers to many questions.
But the relationship with Egypt among the “super-eagles” can hardly be called successful. Of the last five head-to-head matches, Nigeria has won only once with three failures.
This team is traditionally strong. And it’s not just about Mohammed Salah, who is one of the best players in the world.
In qualifying for the World Cup, the Egyptian national team took first place in their quartet. Pharaohs were ahead of Gabon, Libya and Angola.
Egyptians and in this meeting are seen as favorites. True, the scenario of the match seems, nevertheless, to be about parity.
Other worries: Egypt has not won in the last four matches. Will this not be a clamp on the psychology of the players ?!
