Nigeria defeated seven-time champions Egypt in their opening Group D match at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, scored a 30-minute stunner to silence The Pharaohs at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Cameroon.

Ranger midfielder, Joe Aribo, fed Iheanaco with a header before the Leicester star fired into the top right angle.

The Eagles dominated the first half, silencing Liverpool forward, Mohammed Salah, who appeared to be a shadow of himself as seen in the Premier League.

Nigeria will face Sudan for their second group game on Saturday before their final match against Guinea-Bissau next Wednesday.
