Both the Eagles and the Eagles of Carthage reached this game at the bottom of the narrow semi-final defeats. Tunisia fell 1-0 to Senegal in additional time, while Nigeria was eliminated by a free-throwing of Riyadh Mahrez in a 2-1 defeat against Algeria.
The men of Gernot Rohr left the blocks that flew in this game and were rewarded after a mix behind Alain Giresse's team. Jamilu Collins made a cross from the left that goalkeeper Ben Cherifia failed. Defense came out Yassine Meriah and Ighalo got ready on his fifth goal in the tournament.
Ighalo is currently on the Afcon 2019 Cup track, while Ben Cherifia was one of the most serious mistakes produced by the Tunisian goalkeeper during this tournament. This was a nightmare start for the man who replaced Mouez Hassen in the goal.
