Madagascar stun Nigeria to top Group B into the round of 16


Madagascar are group B leaders after beating the Super Eagles of Nigeria in their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Group match at the Alexandria Stadium in Egypt on Sunday.

Nigeria has already secured their place in the Round of 16 with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Guinea with one game left in the group stage on Wednesday.

Madagascar fully deserves their win over three-time champions Nigeria and they qualify for the last 16 as group winners.

Meanwhile, Guinea finishes the group campaign with four points and therefore stand a good chance of progressing into the knockouts as one of the four best third-placed teams.

The Super Eagles will now take on the second runner up in either Group F or Group A in the round of 16.
