Nigeria Score


Score Egypt



16:35 – Undefeated for three years

Egypt has not lost in regulation time since its elimination in the round of 16 of CAN 2019 (0-1). Since then, the Pharaohs have gone on 23 games without defeat in the allotted time of 90 minutes. Indeed, in these 23 matches, they were beaten by Qatar on penalties in the small final of the Arab Cup last December (0-0, 5-4 tab).

16:33 – The two starting eleven

Here are the teams established by the two coaches. Surprise on the Nigerian side with the presence on the bench of the experienced Musa.

16:30 – No preparation

Neither Nigeria nor Egypt played a preparation match before this Africa Cup of Nations. The two teams took advantage of the few days before the competition to bring their group together and take stock of each other’s form.

16:25 – Three matches without defeat

Nigeria remain on three games unbeaten. The Super Eagles have not lost since the reception of the Central African Republic on October 7 (0-1). It was their only setback in this second round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

16:20 – A notable absentee

Victim of a facial injury and placed in solitary confinement after testing positive for Covid-19, Victor Oshimen does not appear in the Nigerian group. The Napoli forward was the main asset of the Super Eagles attack.

16:18 – In the heart of the locker rooms

Everything is in place for the clash between Nigeria and Egypt. The jerseys are on the hangers and waiting to be worn by the players. Welcome behind the scenes of Stade Roumdé Adjia de Garoua.

4:15 p.m. – A first for 12 years

During the last clash between the two teams in the Africa Cup of Nations, Egypt had dominated its rival (3-1). In Angola, in January 2010, Obasi opened the scoring for the Super Eagles in the first quarter of an hour before Moteb equalized and then Hassan and Nagy Gedo gave the victory to the Pharaohs.

16:10 – Ninth act

This is the ninth time that Egypt and Nigeria have met in the Africa Cup of Nations. The balance sheet is for the moment favorable to the Super Eagles who have 4 successes against two to the Pharaohs (for two draws).

16:05 – A Gambian whistle

The match between Nigeria and Egypt, counting for the first day of Group D, will be refereed by Gambian Bakary Gassama. He will be assisted by Senegalese Malik Samba and Cameroonian Elvis Nwajimo.
