  1. Goodbye

    That's the end of this live page now. Thanks for your company. You can read the match report here.

    Uganda v Zimbabwe kicks off in half an hour - you can follow the score from that game on the BBC Sport website.

    And I'll be back with full live text commentary of Egypt v DR Congo at 21:00 BST. See you then.

  2. Post update

    Guinea now need to beat Burundi on Sunday and hope for other results to go their way - in other groups as well as this one - to qualify for the last 16.

    Madagascar have the opportunity to move three points above Guinea tomorrow when they face Burundi.

  3. Post update

    The last time Nigeria were in the Africa Cup of Nations and didn't win it was in 2010.

    Since then they have failed to qualify for three, and won the other in 2013.

  4. Post update

    Nigeria are the first team to book their place in the knockout stages.

    They are the first side - along with Guinea - to play two matches.


    Nigeria 1-0 Guinea

    It's all over. Nigeria make it two wins from two to reach the last 16.


    Nigeria eating up some of the nine seconds left. Moses Simon is replaced by Samuel Kalu.

  7. Post update

    Guinea have a cross blocked. And Ahmed Musa runs it away to safety.

  8. Post update

    Nigeria have a defensive free-kick. For some reason the keeper sends everyone forward and takes it himself - and it runs all the way through to the Guinea keeper.

    The Guinea fans still signing and dancing. The Nigeria fans all on their feet urging their team on in the opposite stand to me. Could be a fun last few minutes.


    Three minutes added on.


    Nigeria midfielder Peter Etebo catches Ibrahima Traore high on the shin and goes into the book. I've seen players sent off for less.

  12. Post update

    Guinea aren't going all out for an equaliser here. Goal difference could still be key and they can still go through if they get four points.


    Nigeria bring on Danish-based striker Paul Onuachu for Odion Ighalo. The 25-year-old is just over 2m tall.

  14. Post update

    Nigeria counter but Samuel Chukwueze over-his his pass forward. They could have been in there.

  15. Post update

    Should have been a good chance for Guinea there. Issiaga Sylla whips in a fine cross which recent sub Fode Koita can't control. But he should have.

    Time running out now.

  16. Post update

    Ibrahima Traore's free-kick is punched clear by the Nigeria keeper in a collission which leaves a couple of players on the ground.


    Guinea striker Fode Koita replaces Francois Kamano. They like making changes at big moments.

  18. Post update

    Free-kick in shooting range for Guinea.

  19. Post update

    Guinea's Amadou Diawara - the Napoli player - curls a cross straight out of play. They won't be out if they lose this - but they will be left needing a win against Burundi to have any hope.


    Nigeria make a change. Young winger Samuel Chukwueze, who has had a great season with Villarreal, replaces Alex Iwobi.
