Nigeria brightened up a staid Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday by beating Egypt 1-0 with a clinical strike from Kelechi Iheanacho, establishing the team as one of the favorites to lift the trophy. Follow the AXADLETM liveblog on Nigeria’s match against Sudan at 5 p.m. local time (GMT+1).

They were unlucky to pull out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in the semi-finals with a loss to eventual winners Algeria and are determined to go all the way this time.
