Internationals: Elneny, Torreira both start

The Africa Cup of Nations began on Friday night - and we'll have two players in action during the competition.

Alex Iwobi and Nigeria face Burundi on Saturday night, but Mohamed Elneny and Egypt - who are hosting AFCON - contested the opening fixture of the tournament.

Scroll down to find out how Mohamed fared:

Elneny played the full 90 minutes as Egypt won 1-0 against Zimbabwe in Cairo. Trezeguet scored the only goal to give the host nation a winning start.

Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira started and played 90 minutes as Uruguay kept up their chances of qualifying for the knockout stage of the Copa America with a 2-2 draw against Japan in Porto Alegre. Koji Miyoshi twice gave Japan the lead but Luis Suarez and Jose Gimenez both equalised to give Uruguay a valuable point.
