A preview of the action

This game has really aged Salah, judging by the first picture.

45 ‘: Back on the road

A brief prayer from Iheanacho before he enters the field.

Maybe he thanks – the forward has been sensational so far.

Was that the goal of the tournament so far?

I’m still a big fan of Aaron Boupendza’s winning goal for Gabon yesterday, but it has to be up there.

Which one was the best?

Salah – ring road

Salah - ring road

Liverpool fans were terrified that Salah would get hurt.

There is not much danger if he does not touch the ball.

15% of his hits were kickoffs.

A little reading at half-time

Sit down. Relax. Read these facts about Comoros.

  • A population of 815,000
  • The main island sits on an active volcano
  • Ranked 132nd in the FIFA World Ranking
  • Their debut in a major tournament

The Comoros defied expectations to reach CAN 2021. Jay Harris took a look at their remarkable history.

The perfect read to fill 15 minutes.

Some HT analyzes

Some HT analyzes

An impressive 45 minutes for Nigeria, with Nantes striker Moses Simon providing a magnificent outlet on the left while Wilfred Ndidi and Joe Aribo providing a base. Egypt, on the other hand, doesn’t really seem to stand out.

An early injury to Akram Tawfik appears to have disrupted an initial plan, and Carlos Quieroz’s side appear timid in their preparation and with no plan other than “Get it to Salah”. Problem is … they can’t really give the ball to the Liverpool man.

HT statistics

Egypt, strangely, has more possession – 54% of it.

There isn’t much to show for it.

Nigeria managed five shots against Egypt’s and generally dominated the game.

MH: Nigeria 1 – 0 Egypt

MH: Nigeria 1 - 0 Egypt

A good half-time for Nigeria.

A quiet half for Egypt.

Salah has yet to take a shot – although he missed a good opportunity to put Trezeguet on goal. Egyptian coach Carlos Queiroz has his work cut out for him.

44 ‘: The replacement Mohamed Abdelmonem in difficulty

Poor man. Brought after 10 minutes, straight into the teeth of a crawling Moses Simon.

Standing again on the Egyptian right as Simon whips a cross at will.

Treat Abdelmonem to a hot towel and a half-time foot massage. Maybe also dim the lights.

41 ‘: The physicality of Egypt falls

41 ': The physicality of Egypt falls

It’s not so much that Nigeria win the 50-50 challenges, but I’m not sure I’ve seen Egypt play one in the last 15 minutes.

Awoniyi completes a shot in the gloves of Gomaa.

Iheanacho pulls back a bit to dictate the game here. Who knew he could be in the moonlight as the first Harry Kane?

38 ‘: Nigeria pushes for a second

Iheanacho played a dangerous through pass that the Egyptian keeper recovers, while Ndidi shoots far moments later.

Egypt needs half-time. They have remained seated so far, but Nigeria has solved the puzzle.

Salah was barely in the game.

The star boy from Nigeria becomes Senior Man.

WHAT A BLOW OF HEART.

It’s his 11th goal for Nigeria in 37 appearances.

’32: GOALLLLLL! Nigeria 1 – 0 Egypt

Sensational goal. This man Simon is still dancing around to the left, raising a cross in the box.

He’s clear at the start, but he hits a throw-in before throwing the ball into the far corner. Brilliant blow.

27 ‘: Simon misses a big opportunity

Net side!

I told you Simon was dangerous. The Nantais was played by a lovely ball from Joe Aribo, but probably takes a touch too much before crashing off.

Best opportunity in the game so far.

25 ‘: Egypt tries to play at the break

Halfway through the first half, and this match has settled into a rhythm.

Nigeria builds itself, reaches the edge of the zone and fails to create a chance.

Egypt then passes vertically.

We are currently waiting for another balloon to be inflated.

21 ‘: Did someone bring a pump?

Some problems with deflated bullets. No one is telling Tom Brady.

Some crisp tackles in midfield could have something to do with it, right?

Some thoughts from Carl Anka

That’s all of Nigeria so far. They have the talent pool to form a great team for the next tournaments.

But it’s the story of a strong team against a one-man team.

14 ‘: Luck for Egypt

Salah recovers it on the block, but knocks down a square in Trezeguet. Big opportunity that, thinking about it.
