For Tunisia, they won one and lost two of their preliminary stage fixtures and had to qualify for the knockout round as one of the best third-placed teams.

And in a video published on the Twitter handle of popular BBC sports journalist, Mimi Fawaz, the former Arsenal and Real Madrid star explained:“We are all behind you guys and you know why because originally my parents are from Nigeria and I’m a Nigerian so you guys have to win for me. If you don’t want to win for yourself it’s your problem but do it for me.

“Let’s go guys, Super Eagles lets do it.”

The last time both teams met at the AFCON in the third-placed match in Egypt 2019 which the Eagles won 1-0.

    Respect to you Adebayo. Always a fan. To God be the Glory, victory is SE today.. AWUUUUUUUURAAAAAA…

  • Fortune favours the brave……..SE has been playing a very brave and bold football…..SE are not afraid to attack in packs and defend also in packs……..Why won’t they be successful?…….I know Tunisia and most haters are expecting Tunisia to be totally dominated but luck should just smile on Tunisia to win us which does not work that way…….To beat SE you will have to work hard and absolve everything SE throws at you…….you will have to run more than SE…….you will have to creat more chances than SE…….you will have to win more tackles than SE……your intensity must be more than that of SE………So Tunisia should just forget any short cuts in this March because luck only helps the brave and strong……..You don’t go into a fight and rely on luck.

    • You are spot on, it’s not about luck, there is luck in soccer but that carry just 10%, the best and we’ll determine team win soccer matches. Go Super Eagle.

      • @Akp, a realistic person is what you are coz it reflects in your views. Let the best team win, no short cut.
