Tunisia have caused an upset in the Africa Cup of Nations by beating Nigeria 1-0 in the round of 16.
The Super Eagles were one of the favourites to win the tournament, but have crashed out following Youssef Msakni’s strike from outside of the box early in the second half.
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.
Nigeria’s woes were compounded when Everton winger Alex Iwobi was shown a straight red card (after a VAR review) for a dangerous challenge on goal scorer Msakni just five minutes after coming on as a substitute.
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.
