After finishing top of Group D, Super Eagles of Nigeria will next play the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in the Round of 16 in Garoua on Sunday, January 23, 2022.
Tunisia finished third in Group F with three points behind Mali and the Gambia both with 7 points.
Nigeria finished top of Group D with a maximum of 9 points ahead of Egypt (6 points) while Sudan and Equatorial Guinea had a point apiece.
The Round of 16 clash between Nigeria and Tunisia is a repeat of the Third place match of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt where Odion Ighalo’s goal won the bronze medal for Nigeria.
The last time both sides met in an international friendly, the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
