  • Super Eagles of Nigeria have crashed out at the ongoing 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon after loss to Tunisia
  • Youssef Msakni scored the only goal that condemned the Super Eagles of Nigeria to a defeat on Sunday night, January 23
  • Tunisian players then decided to celebrate their win over Nigeria by singing the music of popular musician Bracket titled Mama Africa

Stunning video has emerged on social media where players of the Tunisians national team were spotted mocking the Super Eagles by singing and dancing to the song of Nigerian singer Bracket.

Thia happened after beating the Super Eagles of Nigeria 1-0 in the 2021 AFCON knockout on Sunday night, January 23, in a match that Eguavoen's side played most of the second half with 10 men.

And while the Tunisian players were working into the dressing room, they were spotted singing and dancing to Bracket's music titled Mama Africa.

Who scored Tunisia's goal against the Super Eagles?

Youssef Msakni who plays as a winger or forward for Al Arabi on loan from Al-Duhail scored the only goal of the match in the 47th minute beating Super Eagles goalie Maduka Okoye nicely.

Super Eagles tried all their best to restore parity against Tunisia, but things turned sour later on when substitute Alex Iwobi was red carded for a bad tackle.

Almeria striker Umar Sadiq still had a chance to restore parity for the Super Eagles at the death, but his effort went out.

What next for the Super Eagles?

As things stand presently, the Super Eagles will turn their attention to the coming final World Cup qualifiers against Ghana in March.

Eguavoen breaks silence, apportions blames as Tunisia knock Nigeria out of AFCON 2021

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Super Eagles interim coach Augustine Eguavoen blamed the match officials for Nigeria’s exit at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia.

Carthage Eagles put up a strong performance to beat the tournament favourites as Youssef Msakni’s 46th-minute strike was enough to hand the North Africans victory.

At the end of the encounter, Coach Eguavoen criticised the performance of centre referee from Senegal, Maguette Ndiaye, as Nigeria crashed out of the tournament.

After winning all their group games, Nigeria lost 1-0 to the Tunisian side that qualified as one of the best losers from the preliminary rounds.

But the goal was not just the major talking point as Alex Iwobi was also sent off barely minutes after coming on as a substitute.
