Ghana 2008: Group D teams murmur

By Joy Sports

Joy Sports has learnt that the Tunisian football federation is dissatisfied with accommodation and other facilities in Tamale, where they will be based for next year's African Cup of Nations.

A two-man team including the head coach of the Carthage Eagles, Roger Lemerre as well as the Secretary General of the federation Ridah Kraiem will be in Tamale on Thursday to have a first hand assessment of the facilities in the Northern Regional capital.

Inside sources say the Tunisians are toying with the idea of pitching camp in Burkina Faso instead of Tamale if the LOC are unable to find a suitable alternative for them.

Tamale hosts Senegal, Tunisia, Angola and South Africa in group D of the tournament. Already the South Africans have complained about the quality of facilities in Tamale and have threatened to set up base for the competition outside Tamale.

Joy Sports sources say Angola also have similar concerns and are considering Togo as a base.
