The Super Eagles of Nigeria have secured an early lead against Tunisia in the third-place match of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The keenly-watched match is ongoing at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, Egypt’s capital.

Odion Ighalo fired the Super Eagles ahead of The Carthage Eagles after a poor play by Moez Ben Cherifia who made a weak attempt to clear the ball at Tunisia’s goal post.

Nigeria are battling Tunisia for the bronze medal of the competition after both teams failed to win their semi-final matches.

In the matches played on Sunday, Nigeria lost to Algeria 2-1 while Senegal beat Tunisia 1-0.

Algeria and Tunisia will fight for the trophy on Friday at the Cairo International Stadium.
