Egypt vs Nigeria
January 12, 2010 by USA Post
Egypt vs Nigeria:I’m sure that there will be thousands of football fans tuning in today, when the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations Group C game between Egypt and Nigeria takes place. And according to a recent report at telegraph.co.uk, the game kicks off at 4:00 pm GMT.
And when the game kicks off at 4:00pm, the focus may well be on two key players – Ahmed Hassan and John Obi Mikel. Chelsea’s defensive midfielder Mikel may have the higher profile in Britain, but the Egyptian captain Hassan, is the most naturally gifted player in Africa.
Then we look at the teams. Nigeria may boast a greater power and pace than its opponent, but Egypt’s patient, technical style, has brought the team huge success in the tournament in previous years. The clash of styles is likely to deliver a tense and tight game.
And finally we take a look at the head coaches of each team, with Shaibu Amodu coaching Nigeria, and Hassan Shehata coaching Egypt. Shehata is the mastermind behind Egypt’s 2006 and 2008 victories, so Amodu will have his work cut out today.
