The squad is also depleted with 11 players already ruled out of the encounter after testing positive to COVID-19.

Despite the obstacles, Laidouni is confident they can scale through hurdle and secure a place in the quarter-final.

“Our journey to the knockout stage has not been easy because of COVID-19. Each time we do our test, we are under pressure,” Laidouni told the media.

“We are not scared of any team. We will continue fighting and do that till the end.”

  • SE will beat Tunisia on Sunday and I am so sure about it as these are my reasons
    1) SE is the only team in the Afcon that has not conceded a goal from open play while Tunisia has conceded 2 goals from open play.
    2) SE has scored against all it’s opponents so far in the Afcon while Tunisia has scored against only one opponent which is poor Mauritius.
    3) SE is playing on its home turf in Garouha because they have played all their games there and the home fans are behind them unlike Tunisia.
    4) SE has scored first in all the matches they have played so far and Tunisia has not conceded first and won the same game in this Afcon so far.
    5) SE plays the best Brand of football in the Afcon with a very devastating counter attack while Tunisia plays possessive football that in very vonulrable to counter attacks.
    6) SE has the compliment of their full squad while Tunisia has alot of absentees for the game due to Corona virus.
    7) SE has beaten a North African team already in this Afcon while Tunisia has been beaten by 2 west African countries already in this Afcon.
    You see it will take a very big miracle for Tunisia to spring an upset on Sunday except SE experience a very drastic and unexplainable lose of form within this few days to the match……… Tunisia does not stand a chance against SE and you can take my word to the bank.

    • I concur with your rational reasons. With God on our side SE will win tomorrow

    As for me, I refuse to underrate Tunisia.
    They are a strong side, covid or no covid.
    What makes Tunisia dangerous is that they fight TOOTH AND NAIL, and they NEVER GIVE UP. They are also very crafty and cunning.
    Nigeria must beware of Tunisian cunning and guile tomorrow.
    They will definitely take advantage of any contact in and around the box, and passionately protest to the ref for freekicks and penalties. They will also try to annoy and frustrate our lads, hoping to get them yellow-carded or sent off.
    If we make silly mistakes or lose focus, Tunisia are very capable of beating us.
    We need to minimize mistakes and avoid risky play, e.g. trying to pass the ball out from the back during a Tunisian high press, or giving the ball away cheaply in the midfield or anywhere on the pitch.
    We must show defensive vigilance. We should have enough men at the back ready to deal with a Tunisian counter attack AT ALL TIMES.
    I hope we are more ruthless in front of goal now that we are in the knockout stages.
    If we play them with FOCUS, INTENSITY AND DETERMINATION, Tunisia will fall.
