Nigeria vs Egypt - LIVE!

The biggest match of the Africa Cup of Nations saw Nigeria emerge victorious over Egypt in Group D.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal was enough to see the Super Eagles triumph.

The Leicester City man, alongside Moses Simon and Joe Aribo formed what looked like the best attack of the tournament thus far, which is really rather incredible when taking into account the big names the squad are missing up front.

Egypt, meanwhile, struggled to service their frontline. Without much in the way of a creative passer, a lot of their possession lead to very little, albeit there were signs both the Liverpool star and Aston Villa’s Trezeguet were starting to break behind enemy lines towards the hour mark.

Still, it is Nigeria who make an early statement in the AFCON.
