When Namibia and Tunisia play each other on Tuesday at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium, their Africa Cup of Nations campaigns come to an end.
The teams have been placed in Group E of the competition, where they will compete against Mali and South Africa to advance to the knockout stage.
Tunisia defeated the Cape Verdean Blue Sharks 2-0 at Stade Olympique Hammadi Agrebi on Wednesday to cap up their AFCON preparations.
The next item on the menu is a challenge from a rival squad that has lost all three of their prior meetings with a cumulative score of 6-1.
Tunisia, who has advanced to the final stages of Africa’s premier football competition four times in a row, will be hoping for yet another strong showing going into the tournament’s closing phases.
Tuesday’s final AFCON warm-up match between Namibia and Ghana ended in a dull goalless draw at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Collin Benjamin’s team persevered to win a share of the spoils even though they were behind for most of the match.
As a result, despite only having one victory in their previous five games across all competitions, the Brave Warriors are currently unbeaten in four of those games.
Following three successful group-stage exits in their AFCON debuts, Namibia looked to secure a strong start to their continental trip this time around.
