Nigeria’s Super Eagles come from behind to beat the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon and picked the quarter finals ticket of the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The Nigerian team took the lead after Odion Ighalo scored early in the first half before being pegged back and going behind within three minutes.

Goals from Ighalo and Alex Iwobi within three minutes after the hour mark restored the Super Eagles’ lead and gave them the all-important victory.

Nigeria will now on Wednesday meet the winners of the fixture between hosts Egypt and the Bafana Bafana of South Africa, which will be played hours after the Super Eagles – Indomitable Lions clash.
