MATCHS DU JOUR 8
Tunisia will face Brazil in a friendly on September 27 in France. The captain of the Carthage Eagles, Wahbi Khazri, is on a cloud since the announcement of this news.
Tunisia's captain, Wahbi Khazri, still can't believe he has to face Brazil. The Eagles and the Seleção will face each other on September 27 at the Parc des Princes. "When I heard the news, it was incredible. When we talk about soccer, we inevitably talk about Brazil because it is the country of soccer and the chance to play against world-class players," exclaimed the striker to BBC Sport Africa.
Wahbi Khazri added: "It will be a great party and also a great challenge to play against the best in the world of soccer. It is important to play against great teams before the World Cup, because at the World Cup, we meet the best. It also allows us to see what we are missing. We can draw conclusions at the end of the game, see what we are capable of doing well and what we can do better."
But before Brazil, Tunisia will play a friendly against the Comoros on September 24.
The Montpelier striker also welcomed the postponement of the AFCON 2024 qualifiers. "It's good that they have moved the qualifying matches for the Cup of Nations, agrees Wahbi Khazri. This will allow the five African teams to test themselves and prepare. There will be very little preparation time before the World Cup. This will not leave us much time after to work because I think there will be a week to ten days before the World Cup to prepare."
At the 2022 World Cup, Tunisia will face Denmark, Australia and France in Group D.
