The seven times African champions started the game like house on fire and wasted no time in netting the first goal before the half hour mark through Ibrahim Mohammed.

On resumption of hostilities in the second half, the Flying Eagles went haywire and rained two more goals on the under strength Tunisian side.

Two quick goals in the second half from Ahmad Abdullahi and Jude Sunday put the Flying Eagles on the mark till the end of the match.
