Super Eagles

Nigeria defeated Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in their final Group D fixture at the ongoing African Cup of Nations on Wednesday night.

Umar Sadiq converted a cross from Kelechi Iheanacho, before William Troost-Ekong tapped in a loose ball after majestic footwork from Moses Simon.

The result means Nigeria’s 100 percent record in Cameroon remains intact.
