Nigeria's African Nations Championship campaign began with a low-key 0-0 draw against Rwanda in Tanger on Monday, but coach Salisu Yusuf has hailed the impact of teenage forward Sunday Faleye after a bright display. The 19-year-old was arguably Nigeria's best performer during a toothless display in which Rabiu Ali twice hit the woodwork as the fancied West Africans struggled to break down Rwanda's disciplined defensive unit.
Nigeria's African Nations Championship campaign got off to a disappointing start as the home-based Eagles were held 0-0 by Rwanda in their Group C opener. Salisu Yusuf's side had the better of the contest - hitting the woodwork on three occasions - but were unable to take a litany of chances to find a way past Amavubi. The draw leaves Nigeria and Rwanda joint second in the group on one point after Libya took pole position with a 3-0 victory over Equatorial Guinea earlier on Monday.
Nigeria begin their battle for a first African Nations Championship (CHAN) title with an opening group C game against Rwanda in Tangier on Monday. The present team are managed by coach Salisu Yusuf, and will aim to better the record of their predecessors who exited at the group-stage two years ago. The Eagles are making a third successive tournament appearance, but worryingly haven't had the best of preparations ahead of the championship, with observers writing off their title aspirations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
