Ahead of the match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Egypt national team, below are some things to take note of.
Kickoff Time and Date
Nigeria would lock horns with Egypt on Tuesday the 11th of January in the AFCON round 1 fixture.
Ahead of the match, Nigeria may likely start with a 4:3:3 formation. In the formation, we may see Odion Ighalo lead the attack due to his experience and goal-scoring ability. The striker may likely pair with Kelechi Iheanacho and Samuel Chukwueze as both players are very good offensively.
In the midfield area, the Nigeria coach may likely deploy Alex Iwobi in the attacking midfield position. In the central midfield area, the Nigeria coach may start with Frank Onyeka as he has been in top form for his club in the Premier League. In the defensive midfield position, the Nigeria coach may likely deploy Wilfred Ndidi who is known for his excellent defensive abilities.
in the defense, we may see a backline consisting of Chidozie Awaziem, William Troost-Ekong, Olisa Ndah, and Jamilu Collins.
After considering the attacking threats of the Egypt national team, my score prediction for the match is a 3-0 win for Egypt.
