The first half was a balanced affair although the Tunisians blocked lots of the Super Eagles wing play.

Nigeria’s Moses Simon, Wilfred Ndidi and Samuel Chukwueze had all missed chances early in the first five minutes. The Eagles of Carthage defended well and made sure they dominated more of the possession play.

In the 47th minute, Msakni’s goal made the difference before Nigeria’s substitute Alexander Iwobi was sent off after 66th minute.

Iwobi who plies his trade for Everton in the English Premier League had replaced Kelechi Iheanacho in the 59th minute, but his bad tackle on the Tunisian captain Msakni saw him earn an early send-off to the dressing room.
