Match info:

K.O. 13:00 ET Canada-USA | 19:00 Cairo Local Time

Venue: Suez Stadium

Tunisia first match will be against Angola in group E at the Suez Stadium.

Tunisia are looking fired up for this tournament after topping their qualifying group ahead of hosts, Egypt (prior to Cameroon being stripped of hosting the AFCON 2019).

The Eagles of Carthage won five of their six qualifying games, scoring 12 goals and conceding four times. They did, however, suffer defeat at the hands of Egypt, going down 3-2 in an epic five-goal thriller.

They will be depending on Wahbi Khazri, Naim Sliti, Marc Lamti, Youssef Msakni in the attack to cause all sorts of a nightmare for Angola’s defence.

Meanwhile, Angola topped their qualifying group ahead of Mauritania (who are in Group E as well) but only due to their superior goal difference. The Southern Africans won four of their six qualifiers but fell to two defeats.

Looking at their danger men, Mateus Galiano is an obvious threat for the Angolans. The Boavista forward banged four goals in the qualifying round and will be hoping to get his team off to a winning start.

Gelson Dala will offer support in getting the job done. He is a quick and tricky player with the ability to glide past defenders.
