Kenneth Omeruo's header earned Nigeria a 1-0 win over Guinea in their second Group B fixture, which secured their spot in the knockout round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

After a goalless first half, the Chelsea loanee powered Moses Simon's corner-kick into the back of the net with his header in the 73rd minute, to extend the Super Eagles' tally at the summit of their group table to six points after two games.
