They look promising against a decisive Egypt side and could go on to make it two wins in two matches as they face Sudan on Saturday afternoon.
After holding on to a first-half lead against the Egyptians, the Super Eagles looked sharp in front of goals, Kelechi Iheanacho gave Nigeria the lead after a lovely assist from Aribo. They had five shots on target and hit the post once in that encounter. They were certainly the decent side as the match ended in 1-0 in favour of Nigeria.
Having qualified for the world cup, the Super Eagles of Nigeria are ranked 36th in FIFA rating.
To be honest, I think they have some players who can cause dilemmas for any team in this tournament.
