Taiwo Awoniyi will lead Super Eagles’ attack against Egypt in today’s group D clash against Egypt at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nation
The biggest match of the Africa Cup of Nations so far takes place this afternoon as Group D heavyweights clash in an intriguing tie in Garoua.
All eyes will be on Mohamed Salah to see if the Egypt talisman can transport his sensational Liverpool form onto the major tournament stage.
But Egypt face a tough opening assignment in the form of Nigeria, themselves three-time champions of Africa and third-place finishers last time out.
However, Augustine Eguavoen’s side have seen their attacking firepower in Cameroon greatly reduced by the absences of strikers Emmanuel Dennis, Victor Osimhen and Odion Ighalo.
Awoniyi will be supported by the duo of Moses Simon and Samuel Chukwueze.
Maduka Okoye will be in goal, while Ola Aina and Zaidu Sanusi will occupy the right and left-back positions.
Watford’s Wiliam Troost-Ekong will pair Kenneth Omeruo in central defence.
Wilfred Ndidi, Joe Aribo and Kelechi Iheanacho will operate in midfield.
