Ighalo was denied the chance to represent Nigeria at the 2021 AFCON after the former Manchester United star was not released by his club, Al Shabab. Salah’s first-time finish at the back post in the 69th minute got his and his team’s campaign in Cameroon up and running after they had lost 1-0 to Nigeria in their opening Group D game.

Egypt, who also hit the woodwork three times, will feel they deserved the victory on the balance of play and Carlos Queiroz’s team now need only draw their last group game against neighbours Sudan in Yaounde on Wednesday to guarantee safe passage to the last 16. The Super Eagles missed a number of good chances in their two AFCON wins against Egypt and Sudan, but Eguavoen admitted things would have been different with Ighalo and Osimhen at his disposal. We are not clinical enough in front of goal; we missed a couple of sitters in the games we’ve played.

“They [Ighalo and Osimhen] are two different players who can actually score two goals out of three chances. After the defeat against Nigeria we had to rearrange ourselves. ”We will play to win the game and I trust the players to do a great job,” Eguavoen told a press conference after the game against Sudan. Awoniyi and Sadiq are two different types of players too,” Eguavoen said after the team’s training session on Sunday in Garoua. “That is not to say they can’t score goals.” “It was a really tough game and we were a little bit lucky with the foul,” Salah admitted to broadcasters at the end of the match. Awoniyi has been scoring goals in the German league and Sadiq as well. “The good thing is that we are not giving the responsibility to the strikers alone.” Salah, who had not scored in any of his previous six appearances for Egypt this season, struck the post with just 84 seconds played. “Coaching of this team started on January 6 and it was difficult to take the risk because it was better to play with a team that has been together for some time.

Other players, too, can score goals for us. “We have given Aribo the chance to move up the field and he has done that very well. He could have scored one or two goals against Sudan. Anybody can score in our team. “However, Ighalo and Osimhen are two different players from what we’ve now, that is why we are trying to play to our strengths. “Every team at this tournament is good enough to win this trophy, whoever comes our way we will be ready to play them.
