#AFCON2021: Why Nigeria Lost To Tunisia – Jay-Jay Okocha Reveals



Nigerian football legend, Austin ”Jay Jay” Okocha has shared insights into why the Super Eagles of Nigeria failed to win their match against, Tunisia on Sunday at AFCON 2021..

Speaking as a pundit on Supersports, Okocha said Tunisia outclassed the Super Eagles team with tactics, at last night’s AFCON defeat in the Round of 16.

The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia trumped Nigeria on Sunday to set up an Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final showdown.

The skipper of the side, Youssef Msakni scored just two minutes into the second half to give a previously unimpressive Tunisia a 1-0 triumph over 10-man Nigeria in Garoua.

Nigeria meanwhile had a chance to level as time ticked away, but winger Moses Simon sent a free-kick from just outside the box over the crossbar.

Okocha described their defeat to Tunisia a disappointing loss and said it is a lesson for every big team.

“They (Tunisia) executed their tactics well. This is a disappointing loss. They outclassed Nigeria. I have always said that you are as good as your next game. This is a lesson for every big team.”

“I think it is good to see that we are flying high, but the most important one is the next game and we can only justify our performances so far if we go on and win the next one.

So every next game is the toughest one for you and the one you have to win. I hope we will carry on the good job that we are doing so far.”
