On January 24, South Africa and Tunisia will square off at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium in Korhogo, Ivory Coast. Group E of the Africa Cup of Nations includes the game.
Coming into this game after a commanding 4-0 victory over their neighbors Namibia at this same stadium on Sunday night, South Africa marked their debut win in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations. Percy Tau of Al Ahly showed dignity by stepping up under intense pressure to convert a spot kick versus The Brave Warriors, giving his team the lead, after missing a penalty versus Mali. After then, Bafana Bafana was clearly superior to the other team and had already ended the match before halftime. Themba Zwane, 34, scored twice in the first half, and Thapelo Maseko added the cherry on top with the final score of the day in the 2nd half. Their confidence will undoubtedly rise ahead of the match against Tunisia after such a significant victory.
Tunisia has the most difficult challenge as they attempt to avoid leaving the AFCON early, with all 4 teams still having a chance to get to the knockout stages with Mali playing Namibia concurrently with this match. The 2004 winners have won this tournament every year since 2013, but after the first 2 games, they have only one point going into the last group-stage match. In their most recent encounter with Mali, Tunisia drew 1-1 to earn their lone point. Despite an early deficit, they were able to tie the game before the hour thanks to an equalizer from Hamza Rafia. Even though Kadri’s squad only had 39% of the ball and five attempts on goal against superior opposition, Tunisia nevertheless gained a crucial point. The striker for Tunisia, Taha Yassine Khenissi, sustained a knee injury shortly after his nation’s opening game versus Namibia, and is out for the remainder of the competition.
