But Tunisia, who also had to do without coach Mondher Kebaier because of Covid-19, advanced to meet Burkina Faso in next Saturday’s quarter-final in Garoua. “Congratulations to our team and now it is clear that we are taking on Tunisia – which is another strong team from North Africa,” Eguavoen told NFF media. .
