The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Wednesday became the first team to qualify for the Round of 16 in the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) holding in Egypt.

The Nigerian boys beat the Syli Nationale of Guinea 1-0 at the Alexandria Stadium courtesy of a 73rd minute header by defender Kenneth Omeruo.

The Eagles now sit comfortably on top of the Group B standings with 6 points having beaten Burundi by the same margin on Saturday last week.
