Nigeria’s Super Eagles wrapped up their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Egypt with a 1-0 victory over Tunisia at the Cairo International Stadium.

Coach Gernot Rohr’s men got the game off to a bright start in the early minutes of the game after Odion Oghalo handed his side the lead in the 3rd minute of the match.

The striker tapped in the ball from a goal mouth scramble from the Tunisian danger zone after Jamilu Collins made a run into the opponent’s defence from the left flank.

The Super Eagles flew highest above the Carthage Eagles to win the bronze spot of Africa’s biggest soccer showpiece.

Ighalo is also in line to be the top scorer of the AFCON after scoring his fifth goal of the tournament. He was, however, subbed in injury time of first half after a suspected strain.
