Nigeria, who are three-time winners, lifted the trophy in South Africa in 2013 and have lost just one of their last 11 matches – that setback against Madagascar in their final group game, when coach Gernot Rohr rested several players.

Three goals by players with plenty of Premier League experience helped the Super Eagles knock out reigning champions Cameroon during a frenetic 3-2 round-of-16 clash in which the Gernot Rohr showed their ruthlessness in response to having far less possession than the holders.
