Nigeria have been knocked out of CHAN 2016 after they lost 1-0 to Guinea this afternoon.
Guinea needed a win heading into the match and got just that with Ibrahima Sankhon’s goal on the stroke of halftime making all the difference.
Nigeria missed the tournament’s top goal scorer Chisom Chikatara due to an injury concern. It means Nigeria who finished in 3rd place at the 2014 edition also go home early.
Meanwhile in the other group game Niger were walloped 5-0 by Niger in one of the most one sided matches in the tournament so far.
