Equatorial Guinea scored in the 37th minute but the Nigerian side replied immediately with a goal by Victor Oshimhen, the current African Footballer of the Year.

The Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper, Jesus Owono, made some saves to deny the wasteful Nigerian team, which earned him the Man of the Match title.

Nigeria will face Ivory Coast and Guinea Bissau later in the tournament to decide which teams will qualify from Team A.
