With the game set to kickoff at 5pm, the Super Eagles have just come out of the tunnel to have a feel of Ominisports Roumde AD, Garoua.

The boys led by team skipper Ahmed Musa were spotted moving around the pitch ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations Group D game.

A total of 23 players have been dressed from the 26 available for the game.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles know they will have both legs firmly in the tournament’s Round of 16 if they scoop all three points against Sudan in their second match of Group B at the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon on Saturday evening.

Three precious points off arguably their fiercest opponents in the pool, Egypt on Tuesday have boosted the confidence and bounce of the three-time champions, and the training sessions of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday have sought to increase the tempo rather than encourage any form of complacency.

With the Falcons of Jediane and the Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau ending their tie scoreless, the door is open for the Eagles to become the first qualifiers for the Round of 16 in Group D as they confront the Sudanese, who will be looking for a win to boost their chances of reaching that stage.
