CAF President Inflicts Pain on NFF President

Madagascar created one of the shocking results in the history of the Africa Cup of Nations by beating three-time champions Nigeria 2-0 in their Group B encounter at the Alexandria Stadium on Sunday.

Lalaina Nomenjanahary gave Madagascar a shock 12th-minute lead in Alexandria after pouncing on ponderous defending, jolting a side ranked 63 places above them in the world.

Charles Andriamatsinoro sealed the victory in front of CAF president and Madagascar native Ahmad Ahmad with a heavily deflected free-kick on 53 minutes for his second goal in three games in Egypt.

Defeat for Nigeria likely sets up an eye-catching clash with either holder Cameroon or four-time winners Ghana in the next round, while Madagascar will take on a team that finishes third from either Group A, C or D.
