AFCON: Nigeria vs. Egypt – prediction, team news, lineups

Nigeria head into Cameroon as one of the most successful nations on the continent, and with three Africa Cup of Nations titles to back up their claim, they are one to keep an eye out for and undoubtedly favourites to go all the way.


However, following their last triumph back in 2013, when they edged out a dogged Burkina Faso side 1-0 courtesy of Sunday Mba‘s winner, the Super Eagles endured a horrid run in the continental tournament, failing to qualify for the subsequent two editions.


Tonight’s opener against the Pharaohs of Egypt is going to be another test for the Austin Eguavoen led Super Eagles team in Cameroon.


Nigeria head into Tuesday’s game unbeaten in all but one of their last six competitive games, picking up four wins and one draw to book a spot in the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers after finishing first in Group C, two points ahead of second-placed Cape Verde.
