Former Nigeria midfielder, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, has said Moses Simon should have been named Man of the Match against Egypt.

Simon was in imperious form for the Super Eagles as they beat the Pharaohs 1-0 in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations opening fixture on Tuesday.

The Nantes winger dribbled past players on the right flank and created chances for his teammates.

It was one of such forrays that led to Kelechi Iheanacho’s winner in the 30th minute.

Iheanacho was however named Man of the Match by the organizers.

Okocha, speaking on SuperSport, said: “For me, Moses Simon is the man of the match. He tormented the Pharaohs of Egypt.

“He was a menace. He brought out many crosses that would have led to goals. I think he caused a lot of havoc and he deserved the man of the match, anyway my opinion.”
