After a disappointing group stage with three draws in as many games, Alain Giresse’s Tunisia will play this Sunday their seventh semifinal in the history of the Total Africa Cup of Nations.
Captain Youssef Msakni and his teammates came back from a long distance. Carthage Eagles had to wait for the fateful shootout against Ghana to clinch their ticket to the quarter-finals of the Egypt 2019 tournament. At this stage of the competition, the Tunisians began to fuel up and managed a convincing 3-0 victory over tournament surprise package Madagascar; the team that captured eyes and hearts since Day 1.
