Nigeria crashed out of the AFCON tournament with a shocking 1-0 loss to Tunisia

A shot from Youssef Msakni gave the Carthage Eagles their goal in the game.

Super Eagles, who came into the knockout stages with three wins out of three in the group stages, went behind for the first time in the tournament in the 47th minute.

Things got worse for Nigeria, when Alex Iwobi was shown a straight red card just minutes after replacing Kelechi Iheanacho.

Despite being a man down, Super Eagles pushed for an equaliser and almost got it through big striker, Sadiq Umar, whose shot went narrowly wide in the dying minutes.

Tunisia held on to the final whistle and would now play Burkina Faso in the quarter finals.
