Interim manager of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Augustine Eguavoen has said that his team will approach their 2021 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, opening tie against Egypt with a lot of confidence and steam.
Nigeria will tackle Egypt in a 2021 AFCON tie in Garoua on Tuesday evening.

“I look forward to an interesting game between two ambitious teams,” Eguavoen told NFF’s official website.
“As I said a couple of weeks ago, we’ll take it one match at a time. For now, we see the clash with Egypt, and all our plan is how to earn the three points.
“The Egyptians are a strong team and will come with a lot of confidence and steam, but we’ll also be going to the field with a lot of confidence and steam. It’s going to be an interesting evening.”
The kick-off time for the Nigeria vs Egypt game is 5 pm.
