Super Eagles make light of Pharaohs in AFCON Opener

Kelechi Iheanacho put the misery of missing out on the last AFCON by helping the Super Eagles of Nigeria beat Egypt on Tuesday.

AFCON, Nigeria vs Egypt, kelechi Iheanacho got the winner.

The Leicester City forward who is just making his first appearance at the age of 25, was always going to be hungry to impress, and he did that in emphatic style.

The former Manchester City man received a pass from Joe Aribo before sending a thunderous strike into the Egyptian net.

The Nigerians dominated proceedings from start to finish, restricting Mohamed Salah and his colleagues to just 4 shots, with only 2 of those being on target. This is meagre compared to Nigeria’s 15 shots in total, with 5 on target.

Nigeria now tops Group D.
