Nigeria vs Tunisia: AFCON times, TV and how to watch online

All the info you need on how and where to watch the AFCON Round of 16 clash between Nigeria and Tunisia at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium on 23 January.

Update:
Nigeria-Tunisia AFCON

Following Saturday's Qatar 2022 World Cup CAF play-off draw that will see Nigeria face neighbours Ghana with the 'Cathage Eagles' pitted against Mali, thoughts for both sides return to Cameroon and the small matter of a AFCON Round of 16 clash.

Nigeria have two players in the group stage's best XI, with centre-back William Troost-Ekong and forward Moses Simon both earning plaudits for their early performances.

Augustine Eguavoen's team were the only side with a 100 per cent winning record in the groups, and now they tackle a Tunisia outfit who only edged through as one of the best third-placed teams, having lost twice already.

These sides are meeting for the sixth time at the Africa Cup of Nations and Tunisia's only successful AFCON meeting with Nigeria came in 2004, when they progressed via penalties in the semi-finals, going on to win the competition.
