AFCON 2022: Nigeria Vs Tunisia In Pictures by Odewaleadesoye(m): 10:14pm On Jan 23
Covid-hit Tunisia dumped ten-man Nigeria out of the Africa Cup of Nations with a 1-0 win in Sunday’s last-16 clash.

The game was won up just 63 seconds into the second-half when Youssef Msakni was given all the time and space he could ask for as he took aim from 25 yards.

His bouncing, dipping shot caught young goalkeeper Maduka Okoye off guard and his weak parry was unable to prevent the ball from nestling in the corner of the net.

Substitute Alex Iwobi then left his studs on Msakni as he controlled the ball and was initially booked for leaving his opponent writhing on the turf. VAR wanted a second look, however, and the red card was produced to further damage the Super Eagles’ chances.

For a side that won all three of their group games and even rested the majority of their stars for their previous match, tournament favourites Nigeria looked out of ideas in the face of some heroic defending.

Umar Sadiq had the best chance to add to the cup’s growing repertoire of late drama, only to see his shot roll across the face of the goal and wide of the far-post. Tunisia will play Burkina Faso in Saturday’s quarter-final.

Below are pictures gathered from the historic match.

Starting a tournament on a high most times doesn’t guarantee you the title, and to make matters worse, that dullard called and just like with AJ the Eagles were Bruised, Batterd and sent Packing.

Tunisia dt were badly affected by covid? its too bad na..
simeon had his worst game ever, chukwueze, iheanacho n awoniyi looked lost n confused, olayinka n musa sabs were not needed n mk i no even reason dt keeper bcoz I knew he isnt dt good..
it begs d question....
would eguavon still get d eagles job ahead of Ghana game n worldcup?
would dt keeper continue as first choice after today blunder?
Should we stick to this average attack or try n convince Ighalo n denis to play dt ghana game??
This is not a good way in starting d new week na

Maduka Okoye does not deserve to be in-between the goal of any team talkless of a national team

Nigeria camp lacked discipline...like wow..which professional player get active on social media in the midst of a continental competition

Okoye should kiss the super eagles bye bye

sadEjuke needs more game time..our Coach was just a figure head, it was exposed in the way he kept using Sad-dick.... This team is poor, I days it right from day1 that they don't know how to knock the ball around, the keep giving the ball to marked players, when they can spread the ball and stretch the opponent... I am not a coach, but I noticed this in all their matches, them Sabi choke themselves and that really will make them swallow goals if they play against a German or French team...


Sad-dick finally broke our hearts.... Why bring a player with fatigue to a tournament? That guy nor flexible at all.

Lastly, why them nor busy Buhari call? Them allow am carry him badlucj when him don take destroy Nigeria enter their camp... Cowbell of N10 is now N60. N5 box of Matches now N30. N80/N100 bag of pure water is now N250/N300. N200 33' beer is now N400. N100 Malt is now N250. N50 bread is now N150...... We dey tell these mumu foreign base say Buhari don kill country, them nor believe.. now them don see am with their eyes...Osimhen and Denis will be have a pool party right now... tongue
