Nigeria trounce Sudan 3-1, as Super Eagles soar into knockout stage


Nigeria are through to the round of 16 stage of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations after a 3-1 win over Sudan on Saturday.

Superb goals from Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi and Moses Simon was enough to help the Super Eagles grab their second win.

Although, Cameroon was handed a penalty at the 70th minute and was converted by Sudan’s Walieldin Khedr.

Eguavoen did not make any changes to the starting XI that defeated Egypt on Tuesday and it did not take long for them to break the deadlock.

A long throw from Ola Aina to the penalty box started which was well controlled by Simon who made a pass to Chukwueze to power in a low shot in the third minute.

Although the Super Eagles were in charge, Sudan did not come easy in the opening minutes as they forced goalkeeper Maduka Okoye to make a fine save in the 14th minute off an outside shot from Mohamed Al Rashed.
