AFCON 2023: Nigeria beat Cameroon to book quarterfinal spot

After defeating Cameroon on Saturday, Nigeria advanced to the next round of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

The Super Eagles guaranteed a 2-0 win over the Unyielding Lions to guarantee a simple entry into the following round of the opposition.

Jose Peseiro's team advanced over the five-time AFCON champions thanks to goals from Ademola Lookman in both halves.

After nine minutes, Nigeria's Semi Ajayi scored, but the Video Assistant Referee flagged an offside call, so the defender's goal was disallowed.

However, Nigeria could not be denied 10 minutes from the end of the first half when Lookman broke the tie thanks to a brilliant play by Victor Osimhen.

After the break, Nigeria maintained their dominance and pressed for a second goal, which Calvin Bassey provided this time for Lookman in the 90th minute.

Nigeria advances to the competition's quarterfinals with their 2-0 victory over Namibia, which they will face in the quarterfinals. Angola defeated Namibia 3-0 earlier in the day.
