Prior to their last Group F showdown against the Scorpions, the North Africans needed a win to finish as runners-up.

On the other hand, the Super Eagles topped their group, claiming the maximum nine points after winning all three matches.

Meanwhile, Egypt, who finished second in Nigeria’s group will have to step up and beat Ivory Coast for a place in the Quarter-Finals.
