On Sunday, the Nigerian Super Eagles were eliminated from the 2018 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after losing 1-0 to a COVID-19-ravaged Tunisian team.
This comes a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari called the Super Eagles, charging them to defeat their opponent.
The Super Eagles had qualified as the only team with a maximum of nine points from the group stage, beating all teams in Group D. However, the Eagles couldn’t make it beyond the round of 16.
Both teams went into the first-half break without goals. Until Youssef Msakni delivers the single killer goal that sent the Super Eagles out of the competition few minutes into the second half.
Alex Iwobi’s was shown the red card at the 66th minute, depleting the Eagles as Tunisia cruised into the quarter-final of the tournament.
