Tunisia will face Namibia at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium on Tuesday for the opening of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Tunisia is playing in the group stage for the 16th year in a row of the continental competition. They made it to the quarter-finals last season, losing 1-0 to Burkina Faso in a tight game. Interestingly, their only title triumph in the continental competition came in 2004 when they were the hosts.
Tunisia have reached the quarter-finals in the last four editions of the competition and will be looking to keep that run alive. With South Africa and Mali being the other two teams in Group E, they are heavy favorites to top the group.
Namibia failed to qualify for the previous edition of the tournament after being eliminated from the group stage in 2019. In this edition, they suffered defeats in all three of their group stage matches, scoring just once and conceding six goals.
The 2004 champions are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions and have kept clean sheets in those matches as well. Tunisia won 2-0 in a friendly over Cape Verde on Wednesday.
Namibia have just one win in their last eight matches in all competitions and were held to a goalless draw in a friendly against Ghana on Tuesday.
Tunisia possible starting lineup:
Dahmen; Talbi, Meriah, Maaloul, Haddadi; Ben Romdhane, Ben Slimane, Laidouni; Msakni, Sliti, Jaziri
Namibia possible starting lineup:
Ndisiro; Amutenya, Hanamub, Haukongo, Nyambe, Petrus; Shitembi, Tjiueza, Hotto; Limbondi, Shalulile
