Star Tunisia striker Issam Jemaa will miss the rest of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations after injuring his knee early in a Group D victory over Algeria.

A Tunisian team spokesman confirmed Wednesday that Kuwait-based Jemaa, the leading all-time scorer for the national team, would take no further part in the three-week tournament.

Tunisia, who scored the lone goal against Algeria in the final minute through Youssef Msakni, face title favourites Ivory Coast here Saturday before travelling east to Nelspruit for a January 30 fixture against Togo.
