While the Super Eagles will be full of confidence after their success in the Africa Cup of Nations group stages, they were rather unlucky to be drawn against Tunisia in the round of 16.

Their opponents haven’t made much of an impression in their first three games, but they’re still a tough matchup, especially considering the other minnows who have advanced.

Still, these are the types of games Nigeria has to win if they are to win the AFCON on Cameroonian soil.

Kickoff time and venue:

On Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 7 p.m. GMT, the AFCON round of 16 match will take place. It will be held at the Roumde Adija Stadium in Garoua.

Team news:

With 9 points, Nigeria won Group D, while Tunisia finished third in Group F as one of the four best third-placed teams.

The Super Eagles have won the African Cup of Nations three times, while Tunisia has only won it once, in 2004.

Both teams have previously met 20 times. Tunisia won six games, while the Super Eagles won six and drew eight.

When Nigeria’s Super Eagles meet Tunisia, interim manager Augustine Eguavoen is expected to field the same lineup that defeated Egypt 1-0.

Head-to-Head record:

Nigeria wins: 6

Draws: 8

Tunisia wins: 6
