Nigeria cruised to a 3-1 win over Sudan in the Africa Cup of Nations, securing a place in the last 16.

From a Moses Simon pull-back, Samuel Chukwueze started the Super Eagles on their way in the third minute.

On the stroke of half-time, Nigeria increased their lead when Taiwo Awoniyi scored, and Simon added a third straight goal after the restart.

Sudan equalized through Walieldin Khedr from the penalty spot after Ola Aina was penalized for a challenge.

Following a video assistant referee assessment, the Nigeria right-back was found to have fouled Secretary Birds defender Mustafa Karshoum by yanking his shirt as a corner was swung in.
