Entertaining game, this, featuring two of the best teams on show in Angola. Chinedu Obasi put Nigeria in front after 12 minutes, but Egypt equalised when a goalkeeping error let Emad Moteab poke the ball into an empty net. A deflected Ahmed Hassan shot put the holders ahead, before a fine long-range strike from sub Gedo Nagy completed the comeback. It’s some consolation for the Nigerians that they should still go through, as they are clearly better than the other teams in Group C, Mozambique and Benin – who played out a 2-2 draw yesterday.
