Nigeria and Egypt are highly rated in Group D. This is considered the final match in this group. It promises to be very interesting.
Nigeria is always a highly appreciated team every time it attends. Blue Eagles own many quality players like Ndidi, Iwobi, Ighalo or Osimhen. However, their performance was not really convincing when competing in the last qualifying round.
Through 6 matches, Nigeria won 4 draws 1 match and lost 1 match. Remember that these opponents are all much weaker. They even lost to Central Africa, an extremely weak opponent. In fact, Nigeria does not possess a real star that leads the way and shines. This makes it difficult for them to appear stuck. Promising a not easy match awaits the Nigerian players.
Egypt is the most successful team in the CAN Cup. They have won this tournament 7 times. In the squad that owns the best striker in the English Premier League at the moment is Mohamed Salah. The star is playing for Liverpool.
In the last Arab Cup of Nations 2021, Egypt did not really succeed when losing to Tunisia in the quarterfinals. However, in that tournament they lacked many pillars. Almost playing with the reserve team, so the above result is quite understandable. When defeating Nigeria in 3/4 times in the past, it is clear that Egypt is gaining great confidence in this rematch.
