On this day last year, Nigeria were celebrating a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations following a 1-0 win over Tunisia in Cairo the night before.

The Super Eagles were denied a place in the final following a 2-1 loss to Algeria earlier that week, with Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez thumping home the match winner in second half stoppage-time.

Tunisia lost out on a place in the tournament showpiece following a 1-0 loss to Senegal.

Manchester United forward Odion Ighalo scored the only goal of the game as the Super Eagles claimed bronze in Egypt; poking home after just three minutes. Ighalo would end the tournament as the top scorer with five goals.
