All of Watford's players involved in the African Cup of Nations have extended their stay at the tournament by reaching the round of 16.

Adam Masina and Imran Louza were involved again as Morocco beat Comoros 2-0 to claim their second group stage victory on Friday, while William Troost-Ekong and out-on-loan goalkeeper Maduka Okoye helped Nigeria to beat Sudan 3-1 to also take their group stage tally to six points.

Both nations will have another group match to play, with Morocco facing Gabon tomorrow and Nigeria playing against Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday, before they start the knockout stages of the competition.

Round of 16 matches will take place between January 23 and January 26.

Should either Morocco or Nigeria make it through to the quarter-final, they would further extend their participation in the tournament to January 30.
