Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Nigeria will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Egypt when they take on Sudan at Stade Omnisport Roumde Adjia on Saturday afternoon. The Super Eagles proved their worth in their AFCON opener, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the second group game. Leicester City attacker Kelechi Iheanacho should continue to lead the line for the Nigerians as Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been ruled out with injury.
The Falcons of Jediane, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Guinea Bissau in their opener, and they are likely to adopt yet another defence-minded approach on Saturday. However, given Nigeria’s attacking potential, we do not believe that Sudan are capable of keeping yet another clean sheet in the group stages. Talented winger Al-Gozoli Nooh is pushing for a start for the nominal visitors.
Highlighted Player (Victor Moses):
Over the years Victor Moses has established himself as one of the best African footballers. Moses was a first-team regular for Chelsea under Antonio Conte and he scored three goals in 28 appearances for the Blues in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign.
The Nigerian footballer, though, started his senior career at Crystal Palace, before joining Wigan Athletic in 2010. Moses played for the likes of Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United on loan as well. Speaking of his international career, the pacey winger played for Nigeria at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and he scored two goals for the Super Eagles in a 2-0 win over Ethiopia.
Moses represented Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as well where the African side faced the likes of Bosnia, Iran and Argentina in the group stages. His main position is winger, but he is used as a full-back as well. Victor Moses was born in Lagos, Nigeria on December 12, 1990.
