Nigeria gave away lead at the additional time after gaining lead at the dot on an hour through hard-fighting Oghenekaro Etebo.

Just as the fans who flooded the Ahmedu Bello Stadium Kaduna were gearing for celebration, the Pharaohs of Egypt utilised another moment of sloppy defending  to the Super Eagles with a 90th minute equaliser.

Nigeria which had hoped to beat Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game in Kaduna in order to leapfrog the Egyptians in the qualification table was not able to kill off the gamr just three minutes away from the  end.

A late minute strike by Mohammed Salah, the AS Roma star player did the demage, leaving the Super eagles with the uphill task of bettering the Pharohs in the own soil in order to attain the dream of topping the group.

It would have been a very good for Eagles who dominated play for better part of the game if they had maintained their concentration.
