TIT BITS (Match Day 12)

* Eguavoen, CAN history hunter

Super Eagles coach Augustine Eguavoen isn’t blown away by the high marks pundits are giving his side. He made it known before the draw against Guinea Bissau yesterday. But if the team led by Eguavoen wins the tournament (which is possible), not only will he join the ranks of the Egyptian El-Gohary and the late Stephen Keshi as a player and coach, but he would be the only one to have won everything. shades of medals at the tournament both as a player and as a coach – Third place as a coach in 2006; runner-up as a player in 1988; and captain on the pitch as a cup winner in 1994.

Comoros, ranked 132nd in the world, are the third lowest-ranked of Cameroon’s 24 squads for the tournament, with the former French colony only joining world governing body FIFA in 2005.

A total of 11 players could be unavailable for Tunisia in their final group game today. Third in Group F, Tunisia are potential opponents for the Super Eagles in Sunday’s round of 16 at the Roumdé Adjia stadium in Garoua.

But for this game to stand, Tunisia will need to scrape at least one point in today’s final group game with unlikely group leaders Gambia.

Zimbabwe secured their first Nations Cup win since 2006 by the same 2-1 margin.

*In group F, it’s the fight to finish!

While the two initial big teams, Ivory Coast and Algeria face each other in the last game of Group F, the other simultaneous meeting involving the minnows of Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea seems to have attracted more Look out as both teams aim to qualify. Sierra Leone have won just one win in seven AFCON appearances, despite scoring as many goals in their last match (two against Ivory Coast) as they did in his previous six combined in the competition (2).

While Equatorial Guinea have lost just two of their eight group stage matches at the tournament (W4 D2), keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four matches, including the last time against Algeria.
