Nigeria has sealed a place in the round 16 stage in the 33rd edition of the African Cup of Nations after beating Sudan in Group D.
The West African side, continued their perfect start to the African Cup of Nations with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Sudan.
The Super Eagles were in front after three minutes when Moises Simon laid the ball off for Samuel Chukwueze to steal the lead.
At the 45th minute, farcical goal doubled the score just before the break when Kelechi Iheanacho’s free kick was flicked on by William Troost-Ekong, rebounded off the head of Salaheldin Nemer and then the face of Taiwo Awoniyi before sneaking under goalkeeper Ali Abu-Eshrain.
Straight after the break any chance for Sudan was gone when, after a long passing move, Simon raced into the box and smashed low into the net.
Sudan were let back into the game when the referee, after consultation with VAR, gave a penalty for a tug on Mustafa Mohammed’s shirt from Ola Aina and Walieldin Khidir sent keeper Maduka Okoye the wrong way from the spot.
Nigeria are top of Group D with six points, Sudan are in third for now with one point from two games.
