Tunisia send Nigeria packing from 2021 AFCON


Tunisia qualified for the quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) after beating Nigeria 1-0 at Ominisports Roumde Adjia Stadium yesterday.

The Carthage Eagles went ahead in the early minutes of the second half, and although they fought hard, the Super Eagles could not muster a comeback.

Two minutes into the game, Wilfred Ndidi fired an overhead kick into the Tunisian area but it couldn’t trouble Ben Said, the goalkeeper.

Nigeria twice went close to drawing the first blood — first through Moses Simon and then Kelechi Iheanacho.

In the 16th minute, Samuel Chukwueze crossed with his weaker right foot into the area but Montassar Omar was alert enough to get in the way of Taiwo Awoniyi.

Much later, Hamza Rafia made an enterprising run into the Nigerian half but the ball found the hands of Maduka Okoye who looked shaky in making the save.
