AFCON 2019: Tunisia Hoping To Capitalize On Ghana's Weakness

Head coach of the Tunisian national team, Alain Giresse says he would be looking to expose the weakness in Ghana's team today's Africa Cup of Nations Round of 16 tie at Ismailia Stadium.

Tunisia struggled through the group stage, drawing all three games, against Angola, Mali, and Mauritania.

While having his eye on the Ghana match, Giresse admitted his surprise by the exits of fellow North African teams Egypt and Morocco.

“Egypt and Morocco’s exit is a big surprise and we will give everything tomorrow [Monday] to continue in the tournament,” Giresse told the media in Egypt.

“Ghana is a strong and harmonious team. They have competition in most of the positions but we have analyzed them well and we can work on their weak point.”

Ghana, on their part, finished top in Group F, where they played draws against the Benin Republic and Cameroon before registering a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau.

The Carthage Eagles will have to be at their best on Monday as they have fallen short in all their recent meetings against the Black Stars, spanning over 50 years

The last time Tunisia didn't suffer defeat at Afcon against Ghana was in the Group Stage in 1965 and won all six matches between the two sides since.
