AFCON 2021: Nigerians rekindle confidence in Super Eagles

…anticipate victory against Sudan live on StarTimes


After an impressive performance against the Pharaohs of Eqypt on match day 1 of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, Nigerians have rekindled their confidence in the Super Eagles and can’t wait to watch the next matches showing live and in HD on StarTimes.

The AFCON meeting between Nigeria and Sudan is scheduled for 5pm kick-off on Saturday, January 15 at the Stade Omnisport Roumde Adjia in Yaounde. Viewers at home can watch live on the StarTimes World Football channel in high definition picture quality. Football fans can pay-per-day to enjoy the thrills at N200 for classic bouquet (antenna users) and N400 for super bouquet (dish users). Fans can also watch online via the StarTimes-ON mobile app which costs just N400 weekly for sport VIP subscription.

Moses Simon, Joe Aribo and Kelechi Iheanacho were impressive in the game against Eqypt and a win against Sudan on Saturday would qualify Nigeria into the knockout stage, with a game to spare.

Sudan, meanwhile, were lucky against Guinea Bissau in their opening game after their opponents missed a penalty.

In head-to-head (h2h) history and results, both countries have met fourteen times, with Nigeria having eight wins, Sudan having two wins, and four draws.

The Super Eagles endured a dull build-up to the tournament. Following their dominant victory over Egypt’s Pharaohs, the Super Eagles have been installed as the overwhelming favourites to lift the Afcon title in Cameroon.
