Sadiq Umar scored in the 56th minute to put Nigeria ahead in the game. He scored through an assist from Kelechi Iheanacho.

Both teams created good chances but failed to score in the first half.

Sadiq Umar had missed what should have been the first goal of the game in the 24th minute.

In the 15th minute, Semi Ajayi also missed a goal by nodding above the goalpost.

With the victory, Nigeria is the only team that reached the last 16 round winning all group matches at the 33rd AFCON.
