The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations draw conducted in Cameroun on Tuesday pitted Nigeria against 9 times champions, Pharaohs of Egypt in group D with Sudan and Guinea Bissau also in the group.


Nigeria were third best in Africa when Egypt hosted and the Super Eagles would be gunning for their 4th title in Cameroon.



The fixture is expected to be interesting considering the dominance of Egypt in the continent, the Pharaohs only fell short at home after taking the bid to host the 2019 edition on short notice.



Nigeria and Egypt book their tickets to the tournament proper in Cameroon with excellent records and while the likes of Sudan and Guinea Bissau are considered as pretenders to the title having no proven records on the continent.
