AFCON 2021!! Egypt Coach Apologizes To Nigeria (See Why)

Carlos Queiroz, Egypt’s head coach, has apologized to Nigeria and Nigerians ahead of their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) match against Guinea-Bissau on Saturday night.
Queiroz issued the apology while lamenting the referee’s inability to award a penalty to his team when it appeared Moses Simon fouled Zizo inside the box during the Pharaohs’ 1-0 loss to Nigeria in their first 2021 AFCON match earlier this week.

Nigeria defeated Egypt 1-0 thanks to a goal from Kelechi Iheanacho in the first half.

Queiroz stated at his pre-match press conference that his team lost to Nigeria because the referee failed to do his job.

“I apologize to Nigeria and Nigerians, the fact is the referee doesn’t do their job, VAR inclusive. It’s totally unfair,” Queiroz said.”
