Afcon 2019: How Nigeria is anticipating their third-place match against Tunisia

Nigeria are the best nation at picking up third-place medals in Afcon history. On one hand this record makes them confident against Tunisia, but on the other hand, they won't view victory as a significant achievement.

That is the general feeling among Super Eagles followers who were hoping to win the title before losing 2-1 to Algeria in the semi-final. From social media you will notice many supporters are rallying closely behind their beloved team, even though they're out of the running for gold.

Nigeria wants to end their Egyptian campaign on a high, and the players from both sides want to approach this clash professionally at Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo.
