Nigeria 3-1 Sudan
A comfortable second successive win for the Super Eagles, who look a force to be reckoned with once again as they join hosts Cameroon in the last 16 with a game to spare.
Their last Group D fixture is against Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday night.
90 mins: Four minutes of added time signalled at the Stade Roumde Adjia.
Sudan’s penalty has, as expected, proven nothing more than a mere consolation.
Nigeria strolling into the last 16.
83 mins: Nigeria are trying to pick things up again in the last 10 minutes after generally coasting since scoring their third.
Sudan skipper Salaheldin Mahmoud Nemer is down and in some pain after a chase to the byline from substitute Umar Sadiq.
He’s receiving a lot of attention and will need to be stretchered off.
Mohamed Kesra Hakeem comes on in his place.
73 mins: A lovely weighted-pass from Iwobi into that right channel, but Musa’s strike is into the side netting.
There was wildly ambitious effort from Nwakali a few moments ago, but it failed to test Abou Achrine with plenty of team-mates
GOAL! Nigeria 3-1 Sudan | Khedr Safour Daiyeen 70′
70 mins: An emphatic penalty, with Okoye indecisive… but he was never getting there anyway even if he’d guessed correctly.
It’s Khedr Safour Daiyeen’s first goal for Sudan, who are off and running for the tournament.
They have 20 minutes left to make this interesting!
Penalty to Sudan
68 mins: He points to the spot!
So needless from Aina, the ball was going nowhere near them.
He’s shown a yellow card.
Khedr Safour Daiyeen to take the penalty for Sudan…
66 mins: VAR are having a look at a Sudan penalty claim here after Aina – who defended brilliantly to snuff out a Sudan counter a few moments ago – treads on the foot and tugs the shirt of Abdelgader Karshoum as the duo tussle at a corner.
Referee Victor Gomes is told to go and look at the monitor. This is going to be a penalty…
57 mins: A feisty reaction from Aribo as he’s fouled in midfield and is told by the referee to calm down.
There’s then some iffy goalkeeping from Okoye, who goes for a ball that he should probably leave to his defenders and drops it – but the danger is quickly averted.
That was better from Sudan, with a lofted diagonal ball into the box and a deflected cross that looped up from the byline.
54 mins: Nigeria have the ball in the net again after Iheanacho taps home at the back post, but South African referee Victor Gomes had already blown his whistle.
The ball crossed the line for a throw-in during the build-up.
52 mins: That’s a terrific last-ditch block to deny Awoniyi what looked like a certain second goal from close range.
We should mention that Sudan also made two changes at half-time, with Mahjoub Musa Kano and Hussien Nooh Mohamed entering the fray.
49 mins: A brief sight of goal for Sudan, but it’s easily gathered by Okoye.
Relentless Nigeria are on the attack again, streaming down the right flank but there’s no one in the middle to meet a fierce cross that bounces clear.
GOAL! Nigeria 3-0 Sudan | Moses Simon 46′
46 mins: Nigeria strike again straight after the interval!
It’s a fast and furious attack and ends with Nantes forward Moses Simon taking the ball on his chest before firing under Abou Achrine from a tough angle.
It’s 3-0 and there are plenty more goals in this for the Super Eagles.
Nigeria 2-0 Sudan
They’ve spurned quite a few chances, but the Super Eagles are nevertheless very comfortable here and cruising into the last 16 as it stands.
A goal at the start of the half from Chukwueze and another in stoppage time from Awoniyi.
! Nigeria 2-0 Sudan | Taiwo Awoniyi 45′
45 mins: The lead is doubled on the stroke of half-time… in bizarre fashion!
There’s a free-kick from the right after Chukwueze is left in a heap.
The ball is initially flicked-on by Troost-Ekong and is then deflected onto the head of Awoniyi, with the ball squirming past Abou Achrine at his near post.
Not the prettiest of goals… but they all count! Finally Nigeria have another goal to show for their efforts
35 mins: A cynical foul from Mustafa Ahmed Saeed Elfadni on Simon gives Nigeria the chance to swing in a free-kick from wide on the left.
There’s an effort on target and a goalmouth scramble but Sudan clear… just!
It was Troost-Ekong with the volley and Awoniyi couldn’t turn home the rebound.
15 mins: That’s a lovely jinking run from Moses Simon, but he’s got limited options and decides to go back and reset as Nigeria keep hold of possession.
His next run is also thwarted as the ball trickles out of play on the far side.
