the incredible stats of the Pharaohs after their defeat!


Zapping Eleven Mondial Winning Pass

Egypt is a real scarecrow in African football. Most successful nation in the history of the African Cup of Nations with 8 coronations, Mohamed Salah’s teammates have become accustomed to always being present in this kind of event.

However, the latter suffered the power of Nigeria and bowed for their first match in this edition. It’s simple, to find traces of a defeat by Egypt at the opening of the competition, you have to go back to 2002 against Senegal. The Pharaohs had not even lost a group stage match since 2004 and a loss to Algeria.

to summarize

Egypt lost in their first African Cup of Nations match against Nigeria. Mohamed Salah’s teammates had not lost in the opening of the CAN since 2002 and had not lost in the group stage since 2004.
