AFCON 2021: Jay Jay Okocha gives verdict on Nigeria vs Egypt tie

Posted by on January 7, 2022 0

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has given his verdict on Nigeria’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, tie against Egypt on January 11.

Okocha also said that Egyptian and Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah, is one of the biggest stars that will be on parade in Cameroon, adding that Nigeria have the players to cage him on Tuesday in Garoua.

Nigeria are in Group D of the 2021 AFCON alongside Egypt, Sudan and Guinea Bissau.

However, Okocha, a member of the Technical Support Group recently put in place by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to help Super Eagles’ campaign in Cameroon, said Nigeria’s first game against the Pharaohs matters a lot for Austin Eguavoean’s side.

“Salah is one of the biggest stars that will be on parade in Cameroon,” Okocha told The Guardian.

“But also remember that the Super Eagles are loaded with top stars. We have players who can cage Salah, even if it means deploying two players to mark him out.

“The first match matters a lot for Nigeria, and I know that coach Austin Eguavoean will want to put smiles on the faces of Nigerians.”
