Hosts Nigeria open with a win

The Super Sand Eagles claimed victory on CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations opening day.


Emeka’s late strike helped CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations hosts Nigeria to a 3-2 win against Egypt in Group A on Tuesday as the competition got underway in Lagos.

With places at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup next year at stake, the home side spurned a two-goal lead as Egypt battled back through Mohamed and Abo.

However, Emeke’s second strike of the match - a wonderful curled effort - proved the difference as Nigeria kicked off with a win.

Defending champions Madagascar also made a winning start, easing last Libya 9-5.

In the opening game of the competition, the holders fell behind before battling back to lead 6-2 at the end of the final frame.

Despite a second-period hat-trick from Zuheir, Madagascar ended strongly to claim the early points in Group B.

Last year’s CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations runners-up Ivory Coast started strongly in the 2016 edition with a 5-0 hammering of Ghana.

Aka and Dredged got the Ivorians off to a strong start and, from there, they never looked back, with Gbagra, Kablan and Djimi completing the scoring as they moved to three points early on in Group A.

Senegal left it late to edge a tight contest against Group B rivals Morocco - Fall’s double securing a 2-1 win.

Neither side found a breakthrough in the opening two periods but Fall conjured up two well-taken goals in the final 12 minutes, with Nassim’s late free—kick proving a consolation.
