After the first forty-five minutes of play in Alexandria, Nigeria and Guinea are currently playing goalless.

After some initial pressing from the Guineans, the Super Eagles took the game to the Syli Nationale with Odion Ighalo missing a guilt-edged chance after being set-up by the wing back Ola Aina in the 15th minute.

Ighalo wasted an even better chance when he failed to give a pass to rampaging Ahmed Musa who was free on the left after a swift counter-attack on 34 minutes.
