Tunisia will need a huge upset to join new tournament favorites Algeria as the only remaining North African teams in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. But the Eagles of Carthage say that they are determined to add their name to the list of victorious longshots that now includes Benin, who ousted Morocco, Madagascar, who defeated DR Congo, and South Africa, who stunned tournament favorites Egypt — who were so humiliated by their elimination from the tournament they are hosting that they immediately fired their coach, Javier Aguirre, according to Goal.com. But Ghana will be looking to follow the example of Algeria who managed to dominate upstarts Guinea. A win for Ghana will likely make them co-favorites with Algeria, following the match that will live stream from Egypt.

Tunisia are ranked 156th in the world by FIFA, while the Ghana Black Stars enjoy a ranking of 51. But that does not mean that the Tunisians, who drew all three of their group stage matches, scoring and allowing only two goals, are intimidated heading into the final match of the first-ever AFCON Round of 16.
“We face Ghana with one aim, which is winning and qualifying,” said Tunisia star Taha Yassine Khenissi, as FourFourTwo.com reported. “Tomorrow you’ll see a fresh face for the national team.”
Khenissi will be looking to add the AFCON title — which would be Tunisia’s second — to the CAF Champions League title he won with his club team, ES Tunis, at the end of May, as The Inquisitr reported.
Ghana have won the AFCON championship four times, more than any other team except for Egypt with seven, and Cameroon with five. But both of those teams were already eliminated in a Round of 16 upsets.
