issued in:

Nigeria lit up the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday when they beat Egypt 1-0, thanks to a clinical goal by Kelechi Iheanacho, fitting the team as one of the favorites to win the title. Follow the France 24 live blog about the Nigeria vs Sudan match at 5 pm local time (GMT + 1).

Nigeria is undoubtedly one of the greatest powers in African football, as evidenced by the way they consistently outperformed Egypt’s Mohamed Salah in their opening match. They were unlucky to exit the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in the semi-finals with a loss to the eventual winner, Algeria, and they are determined to move forward this time.

But while Nigeria are the favorites in today’s match, rival Sudan will be looking for a surprise after their disappointing first match which saw a 0-0 draw with Guinea-Bissau.
