Nigeria’s Super Eagles have secured their third place bronze medal in the AFCON 2019 tournament in Egypt with a 1-0 win over Tunisia on Wednesday night, July 17.
Striker Odion Ighalo scored the only goal that secured Nigeria’s victory in the game.
Ighalo tapped home from close range in the third minute after a mix-up in the Tunisia defense to score his fifth goal at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
The former Watford striker is now expected to take home the golden boot unless Senegal forward Sadio Mane scores a hat-trick in the AFCON final against Algeria.
Many Nigerians were however, disappointed that the Super Eagles had to settle for the third place after their 2-1 defeat against Algeria in the semifinal.
But better third place than nothing!
