Nigeria book place in Afcon last 16 as Moses Simon seals victory over Sudan


Nigeria recorded a comfortable 3-1 win over Sudan in Garoua on Saturday to stay top of Group D at the Africa Cup of Nations finals, ensuring their progress to the knockout phase with a second successive victory.

An early goal from Samuel Chukwueze provided a positive start and Taiwo Awoniyi netted their second on the stroke of half-time. It took Moses Simon just 30 seconds of the second half to add a third, but Sudan pulled a goal back with a fortuitous penalty, converted by Walieldin Khedr with 20 minutes left.
