AFCON: Nigeria into last 16 as they cruise to victory over Sudan

Nigeria cruised to a 3-1 victory over Sudan at the Africa Cup of Nations which booked their spot in the last 16.

Samuel Chukwueze set the ball rolling for the Super Eagles in the third minute from a Moses Simon pull-back.

Nigeria doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time when the ball went in off former Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi and Simon rolled in a third straight after the restart.

Walieldin Khedr pulled a goal back for Sudan from the penalty spot after Ola Aina was penalised for a challenge.

The Nigeria right-back was adjudged to have fouled Secretary Birds defender Mustafa Karshoum, pulling his shirt as a corner was swung in, following a video assistant referee review.
