Nigeria vs Sudan LIVE UPDATES: Super Eagles seek early passage into Round of 16

Nigeria vs Sudan LIVE UPDATES: Super Eagles seek early passage into Round of 16

After overcoming Egypt in their opening game at the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday, Nigeria’s Super Eagles are looking to soar into Round 16 on Saturday when they take on Sudan.

With the three points already in the kitty, Coach Austin Eguavoen’s men are guaranteed not just a place in the Round of 16 but also a possible top finish in Group D if they overcome Sudan.

Unlike Egypt who are familiar foes, this is only the third time Nigeria will be facing Sudan at the AFCON with the last coming 46 years ago.

Going by the feelers in camp, coach Eguavoen is likely to stick with the same starting 11 against the Pharaohs though he may spring a surprise with one or two changes, especially the below-average Samuel Chukwueze.

Saturday’s Group D match between Nigeria and Sudan is slated for 5 pm at the Roumde Adjia Stadium, Garoua.
