The first big shock of this CAN 2022 arrives on the third day, with the clash between Egypt and Nigeria and the entry into the running of the star Mohamed Salah. Nigeria-Egypt is a fantastic and exciting match that will see the two group D giants eye each other. Egypt are coming with great ambitions and Mo Salah will have to live up to the great player he has become. Against him, Nigeria got in trouble on its own, because it is not very smart to change coach just before a big competition. But Nigeria is a big African that will try to stay that way.
Another match, another star, the Algerian Ryad Mahrez begins the march of the Algerian title holders, largely favorites against Sierra Leone. A status for which the Fennecs will have to fight to keep it.
Also back on Monday’s matches and in particular the victory of Senegal, saved by Sadio Mané and rewarded for their good state of mind.
