Nigeria lose to Egypt, fail to qualify for 2017 African Nations Cup

Mohamed Saleh and Egypt have eliminated Stanley Amuzie and Nigeria from next year's African Nations Cup.

Nigeria will not be competing at the 2017 African Nations Cup after losing 1-0 to Egypt on Tuesday.

Ramadan Sobhy took advantage of a missed clearance to put Egypt atop qualifying Group G at Borg El-Arab Stadium, where a longstanding ban on fans attending games in large numbers in Egypt was temporarily lifted.

Nigeria faced a must-win game after Chad withdrew from their group earlier this week. Under CAF's rules, all of Chad's previous results are thrown out, leaving Nigeria with just two points...

Mohamed Salah salvages late draw for Egypt at Nigeria in ANC qualifying

Mohamed Salah scored in stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw for Egypt at Nigeria in a 2017 African Nations Cup qualifier on Friday.

And Egypt made them pay late on when Etebo played Salah onside to score in the final moments.

Egypt lead Group G by two points midway through the campaign, with Nigeria's chances starting to dim after they already failed to win at Tanzania...

Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny can boost Egyptian football - Rami Shaaban

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti thinks Gonzalo Higuain is too expensive for Arsenal to make a run.
ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down all the best from the social media world, including astute observations from the Manchester derby.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Rami Shaaban thinks Mohamed Elneny can give Egyptian football a major boost by becoming something "really big" at the London club.

Shaaban played international football for Sweden, but has an Egyptian father and started his career in Cairo, meaning he has a good grasp of what the sport means in the country.

And while Egypt winger Mohamed Salah may be better known internationally after a stint at Chelsea, Shaaban thinks Elneny can turn into something special.

Arsenal signing Mohamed Elneny an 'all-round' midfielder - Bob Bradley

Former Egypt and United States coach Bob Bradley has told NBC Sports that Mohamed Elneny can be more than a pure defensive midfielder for Arsenal, describing him as an "all-around" player who is still improving his game.

Bradley coached Egypt from 2011 to 2013 and brought Elneny into the team as a 19-year-old, later helping arrange his move to Swiss club Basel.

While Elneny will provide cover for the injured Francis Coquelin at Arsenal, Bradley said the 23-year-old has developed his technical skills...
