Nigeria v Equatorial Guinea live streaming, where to watch AFCON online in UK

Where to watch Sunday’s AFCON kick off between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea, including information on the TV live broadcast schedule and streaming news.

Nigeria will be looking to snap a decade-long wait to win the Africa Cup of Nations this winter as they kick-off their campaign against Equatorial Guinea.

The Super Eagles may enter the competition as one of the continent’s heavyweights with a star-studded squad packed with talent operating at the highest level in Europe, but they have consistently underwhelmed in recent years.

They missed out on a place at the 2022 World Cup, and suffered a round of 16 exit in the 2021 AFCON.

Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro has been appointed as the man to bring back the glory days and he has a super-talented squad of players to work with, including stand-out superstar Victor Osimhen.

Peseiro heads into the tournament under fire, having led his team to disappointing draws with Lesotho and Zimbabwe in World Cup qualification before losing to Guinea in an AFCON warm-up friendly.

Equatorial Guinea, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with Djibouti in the midweek as they stepped up their preparations for the finals.

They are clearly not to be taken lightly by any means, but they are pitted in an incredibly strong group.

This is a side that made it to the semi-finals at the 2015 edition of the tournament before being knocked out by Ghana, while they secured a quarter-final finish in Cameroon two years ago, so they do have reasonable pedigree.
