Having won all games so far at the tournament, Nigeria are the standout team at the Africa Cup of Nations so far but they go head to head with a stubborn Tunisia side in the last 16 on Sunday, January 23.

The Super Eagles topped their group with three wins from three against Egypt, Sudan, and Guinea-Bissau.

Tunisia, on the other hand, scraped through to the last 16 as one of the best third-placed teams.

Out of 20 games, Nigeria have won six, Tunisia have won six times, and both nations have settled for a draw eight times.

Super Eagles interim coach Augustine Eguavoen has named the same starting XI in games against Egypt and Sudan for this clash against Tunisia.

Nigeria XI: Okoye; Aina, Troost-Ekong, Omeruo, Sanusi; Ndidi, Aribo; Chukwueze, Simon, Iheanacho; Awoniyi.
