A top official of the Tunisia Football Federation has said that beating the Super Eagles in today’s Group C cracker at the ongoing African Nations Championship is achievable, but was quick to add that “it will be tough.” “It is going to be difficult to beat Nigeria because they have very good players in their team.”
The official admitted that the absence of their key players will affect the team’s chances of getting a win over Nigeria in the highly anticipated Group C clash this afternoon.
“We are here in Rwanda with our second team,” he said at the team’s Lemigo Hotel in Kigali.
“Some of our best players are not here because they were busy with their teams and some are also injured.
Esperance duo; Ben Yousef and Yacine Khnissi, Saber Khalifa who plays for Club Africain as well as Etoile du Sahel stars, Hamsa Lahmar and Hamal Jmal are some of their key players who failed to make it to the competition due to club engagements and injuries.
The official informed that the Carthage Eagles are in Rwanda with a weakened side and it will be difficult for them to beat Nigeria.
“If they are all here, things would have been different for us, but I believe those who are here will give their best.
