The Eagles are now top of the qualifying group with four points from two matches as Egypt, who thrashed Tanzania 3-0 in their opening game

The Egyptians are away to Chad on Sunday.

It was not the debut Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh would have hoped for as his team were dominated by a determined home team, who created the better chances but failed to put them away.

However, debutant Carl Ikeme in goal for Nigeria was outstanding to show where the pressure was in this AFCON qualifier.

The home team were first to settle into this game and TP Mazembe star Mbwana Samatta forced a save from Ikeme after just 13 minutes, when he dashed past Solomon Kwambe only for the Wolves of England shot stopper to save.

On-loan Nigerian striker, Emmanuel Emenike who was in the starting line up was a shadow of himself. One of his best effort while on the pitch was a 35 yard shot which went off target.

German-based Anthony Ujah who later replaced him could not prove his worth after Head Coach Sunday Oliseh included in his squad and left out in-form Odion Ighalo who plies his trade with Premier league side, Watford of England.
