Super Eagles of Nigeria have crashed out of AFCON 2022.
9Janewshub.com.ng reports that the Super Eagles of Nigeria have crashed out of the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Cameroon after losing 0-1 to Tunisia on Sunday.
After a barren first half, the Tunisians opened scoring on 47 minutes through Youssef Msakni.
Msakni tried his luck with a long-range shot and beat Maduka Okoye. The ball went low into the middle of the net.
Earlier, Montassar Talbi collected a pass inside the box and unleashed a shot which was brilliantly blocked by a defender.
On 65 minutes, Alex Iwobi was sent off after a horrific tackle. After a check by VAR, the referee issued out a red card.
Two minutes later, Moses Simon received a pass inside the box, controlled the ball and drilled it towards the left post. Unfortunately for him, Bechir Ben Said made a great save to stop his effort.
On added time, Umar Sadiq drove into the box and hit a tremendous shot that, unluckily for him, flashed just wide of the left post.
