Super Eagles won the bronze medal by beating Tunisia 1-0 in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) third/fourth-place match at Al-Salam Stadium on Wednesday.
Francis Uzoho featured in goal ahead of Daniel Akpeyi and Ola Aina replaced Chidozie Awaziem that got suspended for the game after accumulating two yellow cards.
Odion Ighalo, Samuel Chukwueze, and Ahmed Musa were the forward line in the clash and the team started off brightly when Odion netted after 3 minutes.
He simply pounced on a loose ball in the box and put Nigeria ahead in the game, a result that remained that way till the end of the game.
That was Ighalo’s fifth goal in the competition.
