Nigeria can book their place in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout phase with victory over Sudan on Saturday (4pm GMT).

The Super Eagles can progress from Group D with a match to spare should they claim a second successive win, after Kelechi Iheanacho’s strike saw them open the tournament with a 1-0 victory over Egypt.

Meanwhile, 1970 champions Sudan marked their first game at the competition in 10 years with a hard-earned 0-0 draw against Guinea Bissau, goalkeeper Ali Abdullah Abou the hero after saving Pele’s penalty. A win here would boost their hopes of advancing beyond the opening phase.

Nigeria team news

Following a difficult build-up to the tournament, Nigeria will have been boosted by that win over fellow title challengers Egypt. With the likes of Iheanacho and Joe Aribo all producing impressive performances, they are unlikely to tinker too much – if at all.

Nigeria predicted XI: Okoye; Aina, Troost-Ekong, Omerou, Sanusi; Chukwueze, Aribo, Ndidi, Simon; Iheanacho, Awoniyi.

Sudan team news

Similarly, Sudan will be working on the basis that ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.’ Manager Burhan Tia can seek inspiration from striker Mohamed Abdel Raman, who found the net in each of his nation’s final three qualifiers for this event.

Sudan predicted XI: Abou; Elfadni, Nemer, Karshoum, Mohamedein; G. Omer, Khidir, El-Rasheed, A. Omer; Hamed, Abdel Raman.

Scoreline prediction: Nigeria 2-0 Sudan
