Nigeria won the match 4-0 to top Group B of the championship, which guaranteed them a semifinal game against South Africa. Then team will remain in Limbe, where they played all their group games.

A source at the team’s camp told The Guardian that the doctors will examine the quartet this evening to ascertain the extent of their injuries, adding that they have been under intense care of the medics, who, however, are hopeful that they will be good to play tomorrow.
