AFCON2021: Super Eagles Of Nigeria To Face Tunisia In The AFCON Round Of 16


The rounds of 16 fixtures at the ongoing Africa Cup Of Nations (AFCON 2021) in Cameroon has been revealed.

 

The  Super Eagles of Nigeria will face Tunisia on Sunday, January 23, while host nation Cameroon will take on Comoros.


Tunisia has had a tough AFCON 2021 experience, falling 1-0 to Mali in their opening game that was filled with controversy before thumping Mauritania 4-1 in their next game.

Just before the game against the Gambia that ended in a 1-0 loss for the 2004 winners, half of the squad tested positive for Covid-19 which meant they had to prosecute a must-win match with a depleted squad.

They come up against a much-fancied Super Eagles side that breezed through their group, collecting all available nine points and conceding just once from the spot.

The fixture will be a repeat of the third-place play-off at the 2019 edition which Odion Ighalo’s 3rd-minute strike decided.
In their last four AFCON meetings (2000, 2004, 2006, 2019), Nigeria has triumphed three times and should make light work of Mondher Kebaier’s men considering the form the three-times winners are in.
