Tunisia clashes with AFCON dark horse Madagascar
Madagascar' s President Andry Rajoelina will attend the match to support his team
Published in Daily News Egypt on 13 - 07 - 2019

Tunisia will face Madagascar on Thursday in the last game of the quarter-finals in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) at El-Salam Stadium.
The Eagles of Carthage enter the game with a high morale after beating Ghana on penalties in the round of 16, moving a step further towards achieving the second AFCON title.
Tunisia had a disappointing run in the group stage failing to win any of their games, however, they hope to repeat the 2016 EURO scenario in which Portugal won the title after three draws in the group stage.
Tunisia's French coach Alain Giresse depends on building attacks from deep, especially as the team has a strong forward trio, namely Taha Yassine Khenissi, Anice Badri, and Youssef Msakni.
The expected Tunisian squad will include goalkeeper Mouez Hassan; Wajdi Kechrida, Yassine Meriah, Oussama Haddadi, and Rami El-Badawi in the defence; Ghaylène Chaalali, Ferjani Sassi, and Elias Sukhairi in the midfield; Taha Yassine Khenissi, Anice Badri, and Youssef Msakni.
On the other hand, the debutants Madagascar seeks to continue their spectacular run in the championship and go further.
Madagascar's French coach Nicolas Dupuis will definitely benefit from the country's President Andry Rajoelina's presence in the match to encourage the team to win and qualify for the semi-finals.
Madagascar rely on counter-attacks and flank attacks as most of the players are tall and have the ability to deal very well with crossings.
