Nigeria 3 – 1 Sudan

Nigeria qualified for the Round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations after a comfortable 3-1 victory over Sudan to become two of two in Group D.

It took Moussa Simon just 30 seconds into the second half to add a third, but Sudan parried the goal with a chance penalty kick that Walidan Khader rounded out 20 minutes from the end.
