Khelifa set to ambush Elephants

The Tunisian international Saber Khelifa said that the Ivory Coast have to respect them when the two teams play their second game in group D or be in for a shock.

Tunisia will play against Ivory Coast on January 26 at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

”We have the same points like them and be assured we will do our best to win that clash. We respect them because they have very good players but we don’t fear them and we will show them”. Saber told Tunisian TV.

”They want to win but so do we too and we have experiences too to win the game. The head coach spoke with us and asked us to forget the Algeria win and think only about the Elephants and moving to the next round” he added.

” To make our mission easy next Sunday we wont give them chances to play freely but be in their way all day long. We scouted them when they played against Egypt in Abu Dhabi , and we will not make the same mistakes that the Egyptian team did”.

” Rather we will win the game and dedicate it to Essam Jemaa and Fateh Gharbi who left us due to injuries” he ended.
