Nigeria turned into the principal group to fit the bill for the Africa Cup of Nations knockout stage as Kenneth Omeruo’s objective earned a 1-0 prevail upon Guinea in Group B.
In a to a great extent uneventful challenge in Alexandria, Nigeria made the achievement when Omeruo headed in from Moses Simon’s 73rd-minute corner. Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita came back to wellness to make his first begin for either club or nation since May 1, yet couldn’t rouse Guinea, who are in genuine peril of an early exit.
Guinea goalkeeper Ibrahim Kone had been the star entertainer with two great recoveries from a couple of Alex Iwobi endeavors, however his showcase demonstrated unprofitable as Omeruo’s header finished Nigeria’s four-coordinate winless streak against the Syli Nationale.
In the wake of going ahead as a substitute in Guinea’s draw with Madagascar, Keita nearly denoted his first begin in about two months with a help right off the bat, yet Sory Kaba neglected to take the midfielder’s throughball into his way.
