Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Wednesday became the first country to qualify for the Round of 16 at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, following a 1-0 win over Syli National of Guinea.

Defender Kenneth Omeruo’s 73rd minute’s goal off Moses Simon’s well-floated corner kick ensured Nigeria maintain tops in group B with maximum six points from two games.
