Sunday Falaye scored the only goal of the game against Libya to help the Super Eagles of Nigeria secure their first win at the ongoing African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco.

After recording a 0-0 draw in their Group C opener against Rwanda on Monday, Sunday Faleye's strike in the 79th minute ensured that the Eagles claimed their first maximum points of the competiton.

The second half began with much of the pressure coming from Yusuf Salisu's men and Ogbugh made the keeper work with an intelligent ball on target.

The first 45 minutes at Grand Stage de Tanger was a drab affair.

In the last round of Group C matches, Rwanda will play Libya while Nigeria face Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday.

Constant fouling meant the match never developed a rhythm and neither side created a clearcut scoring opportunity until Faleye netted 11 minutes from time.

In the 52nd minute, Ombolenga set up a good cross for Dominique Savio Nshuti but his header was saved by Equatorial Guinea defenders. The striker's low effort from outside the area went inches wide of the left post.
