Kenneth Omeruo’s Late Header Seals AFCON Round-16 Qualification For Super Eagles


Nigeria secured a 1-0 win over Guinea in an ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Match in Alexandria on Wednesday afternoon, maintaining a 100 per cent record in the tournament after two wins in two matches – thanks to a late header from central defender, Kenneth Omeruo.

 The Super Eagles struggled to break their opponents down for most of the game, with Simon Falette excelling for Guinea, and they had a clear game plan to target their opposition’s danger man Naby Keita.

The Liverpool midfielder, who was a doubt before the tournament due to injury, was forced off with just under 20 minutes left as he suffered the brunt of Nigeria’s physical assault.

Nigeria, who will face Madagascar in their final group game on Sunday, as they sit comfortably on top of their group remain and has secured qualification to the next stage, making them the first team to make it through.
