Today in Group D of the African Cup of Nations, a first-round match between the national teams of Tunisia and Namibia will take place.

Tunisia National Team

The Tunisia national team is heading into the African Cup of Nations with a strong performance streak, having achieved three victories in their last four matches. This includes two crucial World Cup qualifier games. Impressively, the team has conceded zero goals across these four matches while scoring a total of seven. Their only failure to score was in a friendly match against Mauritania, which ended in a 0-0 draw. Tunisia secured wins against San Tome and Principe with a commanding 4-0 victory and edged past Malawi 1-0 in the World Cup qualifiers.

Although the squad includes the young talent of Hannibal Mejbri from Manchester United, there are still several players worth watching. If experienced forward Taâ Yassine Khenissi continues to lead the line, one of the potential stars of the tournament could be winger Elias Ashuri. Shining in the European leagues with Copenhagen, where he has become the top assist provider in the Danish championship, Ashuri has even managed to overshadow the veteran Naim Sliti. Another seasoned player, Youssef Msakni, is expected to occupy the second forward position, bringing his extensive experience to the team.

The Tunisian squad's recent form and the blend of experienced and emerging talents make them a team to watch in the upcoming African Cup of Nations. Their defensive solidity, combined with the ability to find the back of the net, makes them a standout team to watch.

Namibia National Team

The Namibia national team approaches the African Cup with only one victory in the last six months. On 8 January 2024, they played a draw with Ghana, and on 21 November 2023, they achieved a win over San Tome and Principe with a score of 2:0. However, they suffered a defeat against Equatorial Guinea with a score of 0:1.

Led by Colin Benjamin, the most famous footballer in the country's history, who had a successful career with German Hamburg, the Namibian team managed to beat Cameroon in the qualifying tournament, which might be attributed to the geographical location of Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, situated at an altitude of 1628 meters above sea level. Nevertheless, the recent draw with Ghana in a friendly match can be considered an achievement, given the current crisis in Ghana's team, known as the "Black Stars".

The Namibian team is one of the least star-studded at the tournament. The majority of players play in the domestic leagues of Namibia and neighbouring countries - Botswana and South Africa, indicating that the Namibian team has slim chances in the African Cup, even of advancing from the group stage.

Head-to-Head

The teams have met only three times before, with all three matches ending in favour of Tunisia, the last match dated back to 2007 with a 2:0 victory.

Prediction for Tunisia vs. Namibia Match

Tunisia is expected to easily handle the weaker Namibian team, even without their best historical scorer Wahbi Khazri, who retired from the team after the World Cup. With a solid defence and creative options in attack, Tunisia is likely to score at least two goals against the apparent underdog.
