AFCON: 4,500 years after, Moses still a problem to Egyptians – Table Shaker

The Super Eagles of Nigeria, on Tuesday, put up a sterling performance to defeat the Pharoahs of Egypt in their opening match at the ongoing African Cup of Nation.

While a sensational Moses Simon tormented the Egyptians, it was Kelechi Iheanacho who scored the only goal of the match to earn Nigeria a crucial victory.

Reacting to the victory, Nigerian Table Shaker, Reno Omokri was full of admiration for the Eagles especially the exceptional Moses Simon.

This is because even though Iheanacho was named Man of the Match, it was Moses who was a threat to the Egyptians.

In a post on Facebook, Omokri wrote:

I like what our boys did to Salah. He was off his game because our boys were on top of theirs. To me, this is the best performance of #AFCON2021 so far. Iheanacho was obviously the Man of the Match, though Moses was the life of the team. This is the first time Egypt lost a first round in an AFCON in a long time! The mood in Nigeria is good. So good, that I fear lots of babies may be conceived today. We really needed this bit of good news after a week of calamity in other spheres of our national life! Apparently, Moses is still a problem to the Egyptians as he was 4500 years ago. One Moses was used by God to part the Red Sea and swallow the Egyptians. Another one was used to part the goal post and bury the Egyptians. Either way, we are most grateful to God!

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
