Nigeria vs. Equatorial Guinea: Where to Watch 1st Group A round of the 2023 African Cup of Nations Live Stream

Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea will meet again in the CAF Africa Cup 1st round at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara Stadium, Abidjan Sunday, January 14, 2024. Here’s the preview, h2h stats, predicted line-up, TV channel info, live streaming service providers and how to watch online.

Nigeria is a veteran of AFCON or African Cup of Nations. This is their 20th appearance in the competition, and they have won it three times. Only three teams have won more Africa Cup of Nations titles than Nigeria. They last won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013 held in South Africa, when they beat Burkina Faso 1-0 in the final.

However, since their victory in 1994, Nigeria have only reached the final twice in 14 Africa Cup of Nations tournaments. However, the golden era of the Africa Cup of Nations for the Super Eagles was the 1980s and 1990s, with Nigeria reaching the final in eight tournaments.

Nigeria qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations as winners of Group A, ahead of Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, and São Tomé and Príncipe. They finished the group with 15 points from their six games, with defeat to Guinea-Bissau being the only point they dropped during their qualifying campaign.

Victor Osimhen became Nigeria’s key player, finishing as top scorer in all Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, scoring 10 goals. Even though the Napoli striker scored a lot of goals, Nigeria still had more different goalscorers (10) than any other team in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

On the other hand, Equatorial Guinea is playing in their second Africa Cup of Nations tournament where they qualified through qualifiers rather than as hosts. They qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations as runners-up in their group, losing only to Tunisia on goal difference.

This meeting will be the first meeting between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea in the African Cup of Nations. They met in qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, with Nigeria winning both matches without conceding a goal (1-0 and 2-0).

With impressive history and statistics, Nigeria still seems to be the favorite in this match. However, Equatorial Guinea has shown that they can be a tough challenger. This match will definitely be an interesting and important match in the context of Group A in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
