Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, is wary of Tunisia, whose squad contains many of the stars who helped Etoile Sahel beat Orlando Pirates of South Africa in the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup final.

Tunisia and Nigeria are the first and second seeds in Group C and it would be a shock if they failed to reach the knockout stage at the expense of Niger and debutants Guinea.

“Tunisia have a strong domestic league and many of the Nations Championship squad also play in the Cup of Nations,” he said.

Similarly, Oliseh sees little difference between the Africa Cup of Nations and the African Nations Championship tournaments.

“We do not have A and B teams,” he stressed in South Africa while preparing for the 22-day tournament, which will be staged at four venues, two of them in the capital Kigali.

“They are all national squad players with the only difference being that some play abroad and others at home.”
