Burundi makes Nigeria Sweat for win in AFCON 2019 Opener


Ola Aina provided one of the most sumptuous assists in 2019 to gift Nigeria the opportunity to take the lead against Burundi at the AFCON 2019, and Odion Ighalo tucked it away beautifully.

A lone strike in the 76th minute by Ighalo earned the Super Eagles a hard fought win and 3 points against Les Hirondelles.


The 30 year-old forward came off the bench in the 73rd minute replacing Paul Onuachu and he proved decisive for Gernot Rohr’s men.


As a result, Nigeria thus sit top of Group B while Guinea and Madagascar are yet to play their first game of the group.
