Nigeria have been the standout team at the Africa Cup of Nations so far and they go head to head with Tunisia in the last 16 on Sunday.

The Super Eagles are many people's favourites for the tournament after topping their group with three wins from three against Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.

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

After their first game against Mali finished in chaos after the referee twice signalled for full-time early, Tunisia then beat Mauritania before losing to Gambia to leave them with the daunting task of facing Nigeria.
