Eagles pass COVID-19 tests again, seek redemption against Tunisia



The Super Eagles of Nigeria will battle Tunisia today after players and officials of the national team tested negative for COVID-19 yesterday

The match, billed for the Jacques Lemans Arena in the Austrian city of St. Veit an der Glan, will start at 7:30pm Nigerian time.

The Eagles had also undergone the COVID-19 test last Thursday, before their 1-0 loss to Algeria in Klagenfurt, Austria.

The three-time African champions will be hoping to bounce back against the Tunisians after Friday’s defeat.

The Nigerians defeated Tunisia 1-0 to clinch bronze at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after losing to Algeria in the semi-final, and are unbeaten in their last five matches against the Carthage Eagles.

However, ahead of this tie, the Tunisians are in high spirits after a resounding 3-0 victory over Sudan in another friendly on Friday.
