World Cup participations: 3
Greatest World Cup achievement: none
In a heart-breaking-final Tunisia could secure their place
at the world cup against arch rival Morocco.
There are not many known names in the squad of Tunisia -
the native brazilian striker Francileudo dos Santos of Toulouse,
Hatem Trabelsi of Ajax Amsterdam, Nafti of Birmingham,
Karim Saidi of Feyenoord, Kapitän Bouazizi of Kayserispor.
Tunisia is coached by Roger Lemerre.
Tunisia has thus no super-duper stars, but a very good collective and
the technically fine, tricky play could bring group opponents into difficulties.
On the other hand that was also expected at former world cup participations
of Tunisia, and they could not fulfill the expectations in the end.
The odds on Tunisia as world cup winner were certainly very high
- 251.0 at Betandwin.
For a bet on group winner Tunisia you get 11.0.
