SECOND HALF UNDERWAY AT THE ROUMDE ADJIA STADIUM IN GAROUA: Nigeria 2-0 Sudan

The Super Eagles are in the driving seat and only a second half collapse of great proportions would see them fail to win this one.

The starting line-ups for both teams as they get set to do battle at the Roumde Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

Sudan on the other hand, have a herculean task at hand as they try to upset the Super Eagles. The Falcons have one point thus far, having played out a goalless draw with Guinea Bissau on their opening group match but they will be gunning for a shock result against their more illustrious opponents.

The Super Eagles are coming into this fixture on the back of an impressive 1-0 victory over Egypt in their opening Group D encounter, and they will be looking to seal progress into the knockout rounds if they come away with another win today.
