January 12, 2010

Egypt came back from a goal down to beat Nigeria 3 -1 in the first game of Group C of the on going African Cup of Nations. Nigeria forward Obasi scored a cracker against the run of play to record the first goal of the game in the 12th minute.

Emad Moteab found the equalizer when he beat an offside trap as well as the on rushing Enyeama and slotted the ball into the empty net. Two great counter attacks from the right saw captain Hassan and substitute Gedo get the second and the third goals.

    Looks like we are in for lots of surprises this time. First Malawi, then Egypt. I hope Cote D’Ivoire wont be the next wonder maker!
