The Super Eagles are through to the last-16 at the Africa Cup of Nations with a game to spare.

Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze struck after just three minutes of Saturday’s clash at the Stade Roumde Adjia in Garoua to set Nigeria – who beat Egypt in a heavyweight opening fixture – on their way to a second straight win in Group D.

Taiwo Awoniyi added a second in slightly fortunate circumstances on the stroke of half-time, before Moses Simon struck straight after the interval.

Walieldin Khedr Safour Daiyeen notched Sudan’s maiden goal of the tournament – and his first at international level – from the penalty spot with 20 minutes left after VAR intervened following a foul by Ola Aina.
