BREAKING: Nigeria sweep aside Sudan to book last-16 place at AFCON 2021

Nigeria 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 slot home.

A farcical goal doubled the score just before half-time 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.

Nigeria are top of Group D with six points, Sudan are in third for now with one point from two games.
