    AFCON 2021: Game against Egypt, my best match ever, says Simon

     Super Eagles winger Moses Simon said Nigeria’s opening match in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) against Egypt was his best game ever.

    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Nigeria defeated their Egyptian counterparts 1-0 in their AFCON Group D clash in Garoua, Cameroon.

    The Super Eagles had their last training session at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium practice pitch in Garoua on Friday before their second group D game against Sudan on Saturday.

    While fielding questions from reporters on Friday, Simon said the style and tactics of Coach Eguavoen had impacted positively and improved his game significantly.

    “The game against Egypt was one of my best games in the past two years.

    “You know we changed our coach, and of course, we changed tactics. So, every coach has his mentality and how he impacts the players.

    “With the previous one, I played based on his instructions, and with the current coach, he gives me the freedom to bring what you have in your club.

    “So, I believe that has helped other teammates and me a lot,” he said.

    On missing many chances in the game against Egypt, Simon said he wasn’t perfect and was still a work in progress.

    “We are working on it with the coach. Of course, we are not perfect.

    “The likes of Emmanuel Amuneke and others are legends in the game, and we watched them play live on television. So, we learn from them.

    “I am neither Messi nor Ronaldo. Everyone makes mistakes, and everyone tries to improve.

    “We are trying to improve in our game every day,” he said.
