Sadiq Umar scored his first goal for Nigeria as they eased to a 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau in the Africa Cup of Nations to ensure a maximum return of nine points from their Group D matches.
Umar, who had a chance to open the scoring in the first half but got the ball stuck under his feet, netted when Kelechi Iheanacho’s excellent pass with the outside of his boot across the goal provided a tap-in for his teammate.
Nigeria was in cruise control and scored a second as William Troost Ekong netted from close-range after Moses Simon had hit the crossbar following a mazy run into the box.
The goal was initially ruled out for offside, but the Super Eagles were awarded their second after a long VAR review.
Nigeria had already won the group before kick-off and became the only team to progress into the last 16 with three group-stage wins.
Egypt finished second in Group D with six points, while Guinea-Bissau and Sudan were knocked out with one point each.
