AFCON: Nigeria 3 Sudan 1

Nigeria’s 3-1 victory over Sudan at the ongoing African Cup of Nations, takes them to the last 16. Samuel Chukwueze’s third minute goal for the Super Eagles set the ball rolling.

On the stroke of half-time, a ball cannoned off Taiwo Awoniyi’s head for the second goal and Simon made it three after restart. Walieldin Khedr pulled a goal back for Sudan from the penalty spot after Ola Aina was penalised for a challenge.

The Super Eagles, who are chasing a fourth Nations Cup triumph, they will face a third-placed side in the last 16 if they can top Group D, and they round off their group campaign against Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday (19:00 GMT).
