Tunisia coach, Hatem Missaoui, has told Completesportsnigeria.com that his side are not scared of coming up against Nigeria in Friday' s Group C fixture.
The two teams will clash at the Kigali Regional Stadium on Friday in the first match of the day.
The North Africans started their campaign at the African Nations Championship with a 2-2 draw against Guinea while the Eagles demolished Niger 4-1.
Missaoui said though the Carthage Eagles have huge respect for Sunday Oliseh' men they won't allow themselves to be intimidated by them.
"We cannot be afraid of Nigeria. If we are afraid of them, there is no need to play the game," Missaoui told Completesportsnigeria.com.
They played well against Niger, but we also have a good team too.
"It is going to be an interesting game. We respect Nigeria, we have a team that can beat them.
"They will come up against Tunisia and not Niger."
