Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ike Shorunmu has disclosed what the team can do to overcome Tunisia in the round of 16 of the African Cup Of Nations, AFCON.
The ex-Beşiktaş shot-stopper revealed two factors to put Nigeria ahead of Tunisia when they clash on Sunday, 23rd.
Austine Eguavoen’ side have excelled to the knockout stage after their impressive display in the group stage.
They have therefore been drawn against Eagles of Carthage for the Sunday’s clash to hold at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium, Garoua in Cameroon.
The former Basel shot-stopper wants the Nigeria national football team to play with commitment when they go toe-to-toe against Mondher Kebaier’s men.
The 54-year-old goalie also mentioned ‘cooperation’ as another important thing if the Eagles would go beyond the next stage.
Shorunmu told Completesports: “I think the commitment of the players was the key factor [for qualifying for AFCON Round of 16].”
“The players worked for each other. They should continue like that [against Tunisia].”
Meanwhile, the duel between the Eagles and Aigles de Carthage will kick-off by 8 pm on Sunday.
