AFCON Diaries: Tunisia boss vows to end Super Eagles run

Published on: 22 January 2022

Tunisia head coach Mondher Kebaier is confident his team can beat Nigeria in their second-round encounter at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Carthage Eagles will keep a date with the Super Eagles at the Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua on Sunday.

The North Africans have struggled in the competition with a win and two defeats from three games.

Kebaier however believes his side can turn the table against the three-time African champions.

“Every game has a game plan and we have a plan for tomorrow. We know that Nigeria did well in all their group games. But the knockout stage will be a different ball game,” the 51-year-old told a press conference on Saturday.

“It’s true that we have been handicapped by the absence of key players due to COVID-19. This has affected our performance.

“The rest of the players are ready to defend the colours of the nation. We will give our best against Nigeria.”
