Nigerians name the only player who impressed against Tunisia as Super Eagles are yet to win in 2020
– Nigeria vs Tunisia’s international friendly encounter ended in 1-1 draw
– Kelechi Iheanacho scored for Super Eagles while Mohamed Draeger netted for Tunisia
– Nigerian football fans however praised Leon Balogun for his performance in this tie
Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday night, October 13, continued with their unimpressive performance after their failure to beat Tunisia in a match that ended 1-1 draw.
Gernot Rohr and his wards went into this encounter after suffering a 1-0 defeat against African champions Algeria in which Nigerians were expecting the Eagles to do well.
They started the match impressively with the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Leon Balogun playing good football to the delight of the fans.
Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanacho scored for Nigeria in the 21st minute and the former Manchester City forward got encomiums from Nigerians.
However, Tunisia came back stronger before the end of the half time and they got the equalizing goal through Mohamed Draeger who sent goalkeeper Okoye the wrong way.
Super Eagles tried all their best in the second half to get the winning goal, but Tunisia were tough as they prevented Gernot Rohr from getting his first win in 2020.
Despite the disappointing 1-1 draw, Nigerians praised defender Leon Balogun for his performance against Tunisia.

Earlier, Edujandon.com had reported how the Super Eagles put up a more impressive show on Tuesday night, October 13, following their 1-1 draw with the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia.
Both teams were inseparable after battling for supremacy at the the prestigious Jacques Lemans Hotel Die Zeit in St. Veit, Austria, where the Nigerians lost 1-0 to African champions Algeria four days earlier.
Coach Gernor Rohr made attacking changes to his side that started against Algeria, with Ahmed Musa, Kelechi Iheanacho and Samuel Chukwueze leading the attack against Tunisia.
Kelechi Iheanacho ended his three-year goal drought when he wriggled his way out of the Tunisian defence before slotting past Ben Mustapha in goal to give Nigeria the lead; 1-0.
And just minutes later, the Leicester City man missed another glorious opportunity to get another goal as he missed his spot-kick which was saved by the goalkeeper.
The 31-year-old shot-stopper Mustapha had fouled a goal-bound Musa who was played in by Everton star Alex Iwobi.
