The defeat to the Super Eagles was a painful one for all Egyptian fans who were at the stands and those who watched on televisions as they were expecting Salah and his teammates to win.

What then happened after the match?

An aggrieved fan was shouting at the stands asking reason for coach Carlos to use midfielder Hamdi Fathi against Nigeria in the African Cup of Nations tie.

And according to the video posted on YouTube, the coach was angry and talked back at the fan telling him to come down and fight him.

Did Egypt create chances against Nigeria?

Egypt had just four shots at Super Eagles goalie Maduka Okoye, two of them on target, while creating just three chances compared to Nigeria’s 15.

Egypt coach Queiroz blasts referee after loss to Super Eagles over penalty shout

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Egypt head coach Carlos Queiroz has criticized centre referee Bakary Gassama following the Pharaohs’ 1-0 defeat to the Super Eagles in their opening game of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Pharaohs who are tipped as one of the favorites for the tournament were stunned in their first game after a Kelechi Iheanacho first-half strike condemned Egypt to their first group stage loss in 18 years at the AFCON.

Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy was the hero for the Pharaohs as he kept out more attempts by the Nigerians making crucial saves to prevent Taiwo Awoniyi, Chidera Ejuke and Moses Simon from doubling the Super Eagles advantage.

Star forward Mohammed Salah had an uninspiring game leading the attack as he was largely caged by the brilliance of the defensive partnership of Ekong and Omeruo limiting the Liverpool top scorer to just one shot on target.
