Tunisia stunned Nigeria to reach the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations

Yaounde-Cameroon: Tunisia beat 10 Nigerian players 1-0, thanks to a second-half goal from Youssef Msakni, to qualify for the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations on Sunday. Msakni scored the goal with a long shot area two minutes into the second half to give Msakni the ticket to the quarter-finals after qualifying for the first round of prime 4 teams in third place. Nigeria have played 10 players since the 64th minute after Alex Iwobi was sent off for a violent violation against Msakni. Tunisia will face Burkina Faso in the quarter-finals, who beat Gabon on penalties on Sunday after drawing 1-1 in extra time. The “Carthage Eagles” have entered in race with fewer candidates to qualify for the next round, due to the many absences in the ranks of the team due to the Corona virus infection, and the strong image that the Nigerian team has appeared in the groups.
