Carl Ikeme 6/10
The Wolves goalkeeper made a brilliant save to deny Koka in the 18th minute. He was not at fault for the Pharaohs' equalising goal.
Stanley Amuzie 4/10
The left-back struggled to cope with the pace of Mohamed Salah and was the weakest link in Nigeria's defence.
GODFREY OBOABONA 6/10
Did well to curtail the Egyptian attackers until that unfortunate late minute strike by Mohamed Salah.
EFE AMBROSE 6/10
The Celtic defender did his defensive job well, though he was bit sloppy at times. He improved like the rest of the team in the second half.
SHEHU ABDULLAHI 5/10
An average performance from the right-back. He was a constant threat on the right side for Nigeria, but his final delivery was most times awful.
OGHENEKARO ETEBO 8/10
Played in an unfamiliar holding midfield role and put up a good showing in his debut appearance for the Super Eagles. He scored his side's only goal in the game.
KELECHI IHEANACHO 5/10
A subdued performance from the Manchester City youngster in what was his first start for the Super Eagles. Had a hand in Nigeria's only goal in the game though.
MIKEL OBI 6/10
Improved like the rest of the team after break and gave an above average performance in his first game as captain of the side.
AHMED MUSA 5/10
Started the game brightly, but fizzled out afterwards. He was duly replaced by Victor Moses in the second half.
MOSES SIMON 7/10
The Belgium-based winger was Nigeria's most potent attacking threat in the game. Contender for man of the match.
ODION IGHALO 5/10
The Watford forward was far from his best in the game. He missed a good chance to put his side ahead a minute before the break and was denied by the opposing goalkeeper in the second half.
AMINU UMAR 6/10
Took the place of Kelechi Iheanacho. He was lively when he came on and will surely push for a starting berth in the return fixture.
VICTOR MOSES 6/10
The pacy winger had a goal bound effort cleared off the line few minutes after replacing Ahmed Musa and troubled the Pharaohs's defence for the entire period he spent on the pitch.
ALEX IWOBI 4/10
The youngster proved his class after coming on late in the game. He is surely one for the future.
