Sudan knock Eagles out of Nations Cup, win 1-0

Sudan on Saturday effectively put paid to any desire of
Nigeria to defend their title at the African Cup of Nations in
Morocco next year by beating the Super Eagles 1-0 in
Khartoum.

The pathetic Eagles, which had lost 2-3 to Congo in the
Group A qualifier opener in Calabar before escaping with a
0-0 scoreline against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa,
could not equalise a 42nd minute goal scored by the
Sundanese on Saturday, in a match the Nigerians were
expected to win to have any chance of picking a ticket to
Morocco.

The Eagles will play a reverse group qualifying match against
Sudan in Abuja on Wednesday.
South Africa shot the the top of the group table with an
emphatic 2-0 win over host Congo in Brazzaville on
Saturday.

The Bafana Bafana have seven points followed by Congo
with six points while Sudan occupy the third position with
three points while Nigeria have one point to stay rooted to
the bottom of the group’s table.
