Egypt vs Nigeria Preview and Livestream

Egypt are one of the favourites coming into the competition, all thanks to their captain Mohamed Salah showing qualities of being the best footballer on the continent time and again. Despite popular contradictions, Egypt are definitely not a one man team tough and look to be in great shape under former Manchester United assistant boss Carlos Queiroz. They will be determined to make up for the disappointing showing on home soil two years ago in Cameroon this year and a relatively easy group with Nigeria the only real threat should help build up confidence for the matches ahead.

Nigeria’s preparation for this year’s AFCON have not been as smooth as many might have expected, with the questionable decision to sack manager Gernot Rohr just a few weeks ago and the loss of star strikers Victor Osimhen and Emmanuel Dennis definitely not ideal. However, they still do have a squad packed with quality and should they find the cohesion, can go a long way in the tournament.

Egypt vs Nigeria Prediction

The Super Eagles look to be a team in disarray coming into the competition, while Egypt look like a well-oiled, rugged unit under their experienced Portuguese manager. With Mohamed Salah to lead them from the front, all signs point to the Pharaohs having an easy time out, winning 2-0 against a disappointing Nigeria team.
