Pressure was mounted on the Chipolopolos tonight after Equatorial Guinea thrashed Guinea-Bissau in their second group stage game. Their 4-2 victory over underdogs the Djurtus has them sitting pretty at the summit of Group A with four points from two games.

The lone goal that made all the difference was scored by the Super Eagles’ skipper William Troost-Ekong from the penalty spot after Victor Osimhen was fouled in the box.
The 1-0 win means the Super Eagles of Nigeria now has 4 points in two games but still sits second behind Equatorial Guinea on goal difference.
