The Super Eagles of Nigeria settles for third position in CAF Africa Cup of Nations, Egypt 2019 after defeating Tunisia by a goal to nil.

Nigeria scored an early goal, in the 2nd minute to be precise, probably the fastest goal of the competition so far through a tap in by Odion Jude Ighalo following a square ball from Jamilu Collins from the left.

After the goal, Tunisia kept pushing but unfortubately could not record a short at goal through out the first half, and some minutes in the second.

The scorer of the only goal of the game for the West African side got injured on the stroke of half time. He was replaced with Victor Osimhen, who had his first appearance in the competition.

The Nigeria team would have won with wider margin, no thanks to Ben Cheriffa in goal for Tunisia who had taps on Etebo’s long range freekick and Samuel Kalu’s short range one towards the end of the second half of the losers final game.

At the blast of the final whistle, Gehnot Rorh, the Super Eagles head coach, celebrated the rewarding bronze medal with his technical crew.
