The pharaohs start the defense of the tittle they won for two consecutive campaigns today by demolishing the Supper Eagles of Nigeria 3-1.
Nigeria took the lead in the 12th minute through Chinedu Obasi, hoping to win their third cup. But Egypt kept their composure, and thanks to strikes from Emad Meteab, Ahmed Hassan and Mohammed Naguy they would see the seventh honor coming their way as they now lead group C by three points, ahead of Benin and Mozambique, who could only settle for a 2-2 draw in the other fixture of the day.
Nigeria is another World Cup representative from Africa and so far none of the three World Cup reps has played up to the Worldly standards, and that just more worries for the African fan.
Cameroon and Ghana are the other two World Cup reps still to see and tomorrow the Indomitable Lion of Cameroon will build their World Cup and African Cup case as they take on Gabon, a team they snatched the World Cup sport from while Ghana missed out of the first encounter as their first opponent Togo boycotted the tournament. Now they have to wait until Friday to prove to the world that they can do it without Muntari and Appiah as they take on their fellow favorite Ivory Coast.
See you tomorrow as we see Eto'o and Camoroon taking the center stage.
