After defeating hosts and one of the tournament’s favourites, Cote d’Ivoire, the Super Eagles extended their winning streak as they soared past Guinea Bissau at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), on Monday.

Nigeria began the competition on a disturbing note, drawing Equatorial Guinea in their first match but the team made a statement by winning Cote d’Ivoire in front of their home crowd.

The game for the Super Eagles was a fight for pride because the Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau fancied an upset when they filed out against the 2013 champions, having defeated Nigeria in Abuja during the qualification race for the 2023 AFCON.

“Indeed we are going to base ourselves on this match,” Guinea-Bissau coach Baciro Conde said in a pre-match conference.

An own goal in the 37th minute by Sangante saw the Guinea Bissau side fall behind the Super Eagles of Nigeria and that goal was enough to get the job done for the Super Eagles.

Nigeria sits comfortably on the second position, next to Equatorial Guinea on goals differences.

Securing all three points today means the Super Eagles have clinched a spot in the next round of the tournament.
