Nigeria ride depth, central midfield partnership past Guinea and into AFCON round of 16

Kenneth Omeruo's late header saw Nigeria clinch a spot in the round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

After missing the previous two Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria have announced their tournament return in 2019 with two wins from two. Their latest, against Guinea, was more about being efficient than spectacular. With two wins, they become the first team to reach the knockout stage of the expanded 24 team Africa Cup of Nations.

Alec Mudimu: From Welsh Premier League to stopping Mohamed Salah at Afcon

CAIRO -- Alec Mudimu believes he "learned a lifetime's work" during Zimbabwe's Africa Cup of Nations opener on Friday, as the Cefn Druids defender swapped the Welsh Premier League for a showdown with Mohamed Salah and Egypt.

The Warriors ultimately fell to a 1-0 defeat following Trezeguet's 41st-minute winner in front of 75,000 spectators at Cairo International Stadium, but Mudimu is taking plenty of positives from the performance after testing himself against Salah only three weeks after...
