Austin Okocha claims that Tunisia outsmarted Nigeria following their 1-0 victory over the 10-man Super Eagles in round of 16 at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nation (AFCON).
Youssef Msakni’s second half strike was all that was needed to end the game 1-0 and send the North Africans into the quarter-finals.
Speaking after the encounter, Okocha smart: “Tunisia outsmarted Eagles. They deserved the win. Football is the biggest winner. When won our three group matches but fell short against Tunis. We just have to learn our lesson and move on.”
“The players needed to take charge and try change things themselves on the pitch if it wasn’t going your way. Like Moses Simon, he tried to force things when it wasn’t going for him but sometime, you keep it simple.”
Tunisia will now meet Burkina Faso in the quarter-final.
