The Gambia goalkeeper Baboucarr Gaye stops a penalty kick

Tunisia's penalty curse struck again as defeat by The Gambia left the Carthage Eagles with a daunting last 16 Africa Cup of Nations tie against Nigeria.

Baboucarr Gaye saved Seifeddine Jaziri's penalty as Tunisia missed from the spot for the third successive game.

The Gambia capitalised as Musa Barrow's 25-yard free-kick struck the bar before Ablie Jallow hit an injury-time winner.

The result means Tunisia finish third in Group F while debutants The Gambia, in second, will face Guinea.
