Nigeria and Tunisia played out a 1-1 draw in their Group C Day two clash on Friday in Kigali. Chisom Chikatara put Nigeria up few minutes after recess before Ahmed Akaichi leveled midway to earn his side a vital point.
Tunisia dominated the first half but failed to find the back of the net whilst Nigeria sat back with occasional moves upfront.

The Abia Warriors forward fired past a hapless Tunisia goalie Rami Jeridi for his fourth goal of the tournament.
The lead will last for only 17 minutes before Akaichi restored parity finishing off a three-man move that involved Moncer and substitute Hichem Essifi. Moncer crossed to Essifi, whose header found Akaichi, who shot past Ezenwa for a deserving equalizer.
