Tunisia bitter at ouster



” It’s bitter “ . That’s how Tunisia head coach Sami Trabelsi described what he and his players felt after being ousted from Afcon.

The Carthage Eagles ended their third match at the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Togo and that was not enough for them to qualify.

“ It’s very bitter to leave the tournament at the group stage. We had many of opportunities during this game but were very unlucky and now we out of the tournament” Sami said after that match.

” We studied Togo good, but to win these games you have to score and we did not except by penalty and that is not enough to qualify” he added.

Tunisia came third at their group D with four points from one victory over Algeria , one draw and one defeat from Ivory Coast. Fellow Arab rival Algeria came fourth one point.
