Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi, blamed ill- luck and the failure of the Egyptians to adhere strictly to the rules of the game as the main reason why the Super Eagles failed to record a win in Friday's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Pharaohs, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The Super Eagles were heading for a 1-0 win against the North Africans before Mohamed Salah put his side level late in the game.
The Chelsea midfielder told Completesportsnigeria.com said he and his team mates  expected the Egyptians to give the ball back to them after it was kicked out to allow one of the players recover from an injury.

He however expressed confidence they will beat their opponent next Tuesday in Alexandria.

"We feel cheated with the way the Egyptians scored their goal," a visibly disappointed Mikel told Completesportsnigeria.com after the game.

"We expected them to give the ball back to us after one of my team mates kicked it out to enable the referee attend to attend to the injured player, but instead they went on with play and scored.

"Even though it hurts a lot, there is a lot to play in the group. We believe we can beat them in Alexandria and that is what we are doing to do.

"I love the atmosphere in camp as everyone is determined to see us qualify for the next AFCON. We will fight till the end to ensure we achieve that objective."
