Super Eagles demolish Sudan to book place in round of 16

Nigerian Super Eagles on Saturday thrashed Sudan 3-1 to book their place in the round of 16 of the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON). 

Building on their first victory over Egypt, the Super Eagles dominated ball possession, created more chances, and scored some very brilliant goals. 

Samuel Chukwueze gave Super Eagles the lead 3 minutes into the game, scoring the fastest goal since the  tournament commenced on January 9. 

Taiwo Awoniyi doubled Super Eagles lead just few minutes to the first half break, scoring a brilliant goal. 

The Eagles went into first half break with a 2 goal lead, leaving Sudan with a huge mountain to climb.  

Just a minute into second half, Simon Moses, who had a fantastic outing against Egypt, brilliantly dropped the ball on his chest before taking a left foot shot into Sudanese net. 

In the 68th minute, a bad challenge by Ola Aina earned Sudan a penalty, which was converted by Walieldin Khedr. 

With six points in two games, three-time AFCON winner, Super Eagles show prospect as a contender for the trophy.

Nigeria will play against Guinea-Bissau in the last group stage game.
