Nigeria defeated Egypt in their Africa Cup of Nations opener on Tuesday, with Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanacho scoring the goal needed to lead the Super Eagles to victory.
Iheanacho’s goal came in the 30th minute, helping lead Nigeria past Mohamed Salah’s Egypt in their Group D opener.
The finish from the Nigerian forward was a spectacular one, as he took a touch in the box before rocketing a shot past Mohammed El Shenawy for the game’s only goal.
