AFCON 2023: Tunisia Bow Out After Draw Vs South Africa, Namibia Advance

Carthage Eagles of Tunisia is the latest big team to crash out in the group stage of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d’Ivoire.

Going into Wednesday’s Group E fixture, Tunisia needed all three points against South Africa to progress into the round of 16.

The AFCON 2004 champions surprisingly lost their opening game against Namibia before recording a draw with DR Congo.

It was not to be against the South Africans as the Tunisians could only settle for a goalless draw which was not enough to secure passage into the next round.
