NGA 1-0 EGY: 3 Super Eagles Players That Impressed The Most As They Take First Half Lead

On Saturday, the Super Eagles of Nigeria produced an outstanding performance in the first half of their match against the Pharaohs of Egypt at the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations competition in Cameroon.

The goal by Kelechi Iheanacho, a Leicester City player, in the 30th minute was enough to give the three-time African champions a 1-0 lead against the Egyptians before the half-time break.

Niger’s Iheanacho took advantage of a sloppy mistake by the north African opponents to score the game’s first goal.

Let’s take a look at three players who stood out the most during the first 45 minutes of the game, for the time being.

1. Simon Moses

Moses has proven to be capable of putting up great performances that have exceeded the expectations of many people. he has supplied excellent crosses to Taiwo Awoniyi and Kelechi Iheanacho on a number of occasions, as well as others. He was the player that laid the foundation for the ball that resulted in the first goal.

2. Kelechi Iheanacho
The team’s second striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, has been pushing for multiple opportunities despite his position behind the lead striker. He scored the lone goal that gave Nigeria the lead in the first half of the game.

3. William Troost-Ekong

So far, Troost-Ekong has demonstrated a significant level of improvement. He has done an excellent job of controlling the central defense area of operations. Furthermore, he was able to keep Mohamed Salah under control for the full 45 minutes of play.
