This will be the 6th appearance of Tunisia in the world cup tournament. They made their debut in 1978. Tunisia’s Manager, Jalel Kadri has been quoted on several occasions speaking optimistically of the team’s prowess and how much he has confidence in his team to make it through the group stage.
Tunisia is in Group D. They will be facing Australia, France, and Denmark and possibly beat them to be able to proceed to the next level of the match. They had beaten Comoros in the warm-up games with a 1-0 win. They later lost to Brazil with a 1-5 loss. Below is a discussion of players to look out for and the position outline of the team.
Players to watch out for
Jalel’s first name On the list is possibly Youssef Msakni. He is a forward playing for Al-Arabi and is Tunisia’s team captain with 83 wins to his name. Other names that will possibly make headlines in the Tunisia side are the likes of Hannibal Mejbri, 19 years old and signed to Manchester United. Also, Oussama Haddadi and Ali Maaloul are players to look out for this season from the Tunisia Side.
A good goalie can keep a team afloat even in the worst and the fiercest attack from the opponents. Tunisia will be playing with the legendary goalkeeper Ben Said Bechir who is currently playing for US Monastir. Dahmen Aymen of CS Sfaxien also will feature in the position. This dictates that the goalkeeper position of the Tunisia side is one of the strongest.
Names such as Talbi Montassar and Ifa Bilel are names to leave any striker shaking. These names will be the one striker from the opposing teams will have to have in mind. Tunisia’s defense team is quite compact with experienced and talented names on the list. We are looking forward to seeing a strong defense in the Tunisia side in the tournament.
The Midfield of Tunisia compared to the rest of the group D teams are relatively weak. However, some skilled players in the Midfield shine a light on the Tunisia side such as Laidouni Aissa playing for Ferencvarosi, and Ben Slimane Anis of Brondby IF.
Although it might not be the strongest in the group, the Midfield of Tunisia might wow many people with perfect team coordination under the leadership of Jalel.
Right, Winger Jaziri Seifeddine is one of the key players in Tunisia’s Forward position. There might be some interesting actions coming from the forwards of Tunisia as they hit the ball on target, this is due to the promising nature of the players in the forward position of Tunisia. With perfect team cooperation, expect Tunisia to break Group D to enter the next level of the tournament.
