But for the exceptional brilliance of Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper, Jesus Lazaro Owono, perhaps, Nigeria would have won their opening Group A match that ended 1-1.
Jesus Owono, who also guides the goalpost for La Liga side, Deportivo Alavés was called on several times as the Super Eagles tormented the defence line of Equatorial Guinea.
He had to make many point-blank saves especially from the efforts of Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen.
His efforts were rewarded as he was named the Man-of-the-Match.
