AFCON 2021: Nigeria Defeat Egypt 1-0 In Group D Opener


    Kelechi Iheanacho was on target as Nigeria comfortably beat seven-time champions Egypt in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Group D opener.

    The Leicester City striker opened the scoring in the 30th minute, burying a stunning half-volley on the turn.

    Nigeria dominated throughout, with Egypt keeper Mohamed El Shenawy tipping a Taiwo Awoniyi header on to the bar just after the restart.

    The Pharaohs offered little in response after falling behind in Garoua.
