|The Nigeria camp at the African Cup of Nations in Angola remain in shock after Tuesday“s humiliating 1-3 defeat bu champions Egypt.
The Pharaohs clipped the Eagles“wings despite going behind after 11 minutes to a Chinedu Obasi rocket. Everyone expected nigeria to dominate henceforth but the sluggish Eagles allowed the smart and skilful Pharaohs into the game and were humbled at the end.
Federations chiefs, officials, media representatives and officials of the Nigeria Embassy in Angola as well as members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club could not believe that Egypt, which had not beaten Nigeria at the Cup of Nations since 1963, had so embarrassed the World Cup finalists.
The larger blame is being put on the technical crew for poor substitutions and inability to read the game and make the proper technical and tactical changes necessary to turn it around.
Nigeria remain bottom of Group C after the first round of matches, following Benin“s 2-2 draw with Mozambique at the same venue on Tuesday.
