Super Eagles Soar To Group Of 16 As It Thrashes Guinea Bissau 2-0


The Super Eagles of Nigeria sealed their football campaign in group D at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau.

Like the previous encounters with Egypt and Sudan, the Super Eagles displayed a brilliant performance to outclass their West African counterparts 2-0 amid excitement and cheers from supporters.

They maintained a dominant form to end their group campaign, winning all nine points from three matches – the first team to record such feat in the ongoing tournament.

The Eagles took on the Djurtus in their third Group D match at Stade Roumde Adjia in the port city of Garoua, the capital of Cameroon’s northern region.

The three-time African champions went into the match with high spirits, taking charge of the first half of the game as fans cheer the players with drums and other musical instruments.

But this was not enough for Nigeria to get the ball past Guinea-Bissau’s goalkeeper until the referee blew the whistle, marking the end of the first half.

At the resumption of the match, Nigerian forward Umar Sadiq put the Eagles ahead of their Guinea-Bissau contenders thanks to assist from teammate Kelechi Iheanacho in the 56th minute.

Shortly after taking the lead, coach Augustine Eguavoen made his first change of the game and substituted Sadiq and Chidera Ejuke with Peter Olayinka and Moses Simon respectively
