Egypt coach, Carlos Queiroz, has revealed reason why his team, the Pharaohs lost to the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the on-going Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Queiroz said his team’s poor performance in the first half caused the Pharaohs’ loss.

The 68-year-old tactician, who stated this during a post-match interview said the Pharaohs were nowhere to be found on the pitch in the first half.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen said playing to instruction, high pressing and not undermining the opponent was the tactics his team used to caged Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah and his teammates.

He said, “The performance in the first half was very poor and this is the truth, we were not on the field. We started playing in the second half and there was no reason for this failure and loss against Nigeria.

“We lost this match but there are six points we must get against Sudan and Guinea Bissau to qualify.”

A sweet 30th minute belter, intelligently struck by Kelechi Iheanacho and off a brilliant headed pass by Taiwo Awoniyi, earned Nigeria a first-ever opening match win over Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations as Cameroon’s northern town of Garoua dazzled in green and white on Tuesday night.
