Venue: Al Salam Stadium (Cairo)
A defeat in their respective semi-finals on Sunday meant that a third-place finish was the next best thing that either team would be setting their sights on.
Tunisia’s campaign so far has been less than exciting, with five of their last six games ending in a draw at the end of regulation time. The squad have preferred to defend deep inside their own half and have not been keen on racking up the goals.
Their strategy, however, failed to see them through in their last tie against Senegal. The Tunisians made just two attempts at goal in the first half, none of which were even on target.
Although they did bring the fireworks in the second half, they failed to beat the goalkeeper and pushed the game into extra time. An own goal ten minutes into the first quarter was enough to extinguish Alain Giresse’s side’s hopes of edging closer to the cup.
Their counterparts Nigeria, on the other hand, had their hearts broken by Algerian skipper Riyadh Mahrez who scored the winning goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time. Although Algeria went into the break with a goal in hand, the scores were leveled in the 72nd minute through Ighalo who found the back of the net from the penalty spot.
