Super Eagles of Nigeria on Saturday qualified for the round of 16 at the ongoing Africa Nations Cup tournament, taking place in Cameroun.
The Eagles in their second Group D encounter with Sudan’s Falcons of Jediane won the match by three counter goals to one.
The match which started 5pm on Saturday was played at Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua.
Samuel Chukwueze scored the first goal for the Eagles two minutes into the encounter with an assist from Moses Simon.
Just at the half-hour mark, Taiwo Aworinji made it two, while Simon Moses scored the third goal for the Eagles.
The only goal scored by the Sudanese was through a spot-kick converted by Khed Safour Daiyeen.
The Eagles will on Wednesday play against their last group D opponent, Guinea-Bissau.
Super Eagles interim coach Augustine Eguavoen had told newsmen during the pre-match conference on Friday that his team would play Sudan with the utmost respect.
The Sudanese according to him were not pushovers and would be treated as such, adding that consolidating on the victory against Egypt, was the ultimate goal.
