Omar Rekik receives Tunisia callup for AFCON 0

Posted on December 30, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal youngster Omar Rekik has been called up to represent Tunisia at the upcoming African Cup of Nations, played from January 9th to February 6th. His country will start its involvement in the tournament in Cameroon on January 12th against Mali in Group F, and continue with a clash against Mauritania on the 16th, before closing the group stage against Gambia four days later.

According to football.london, Rekik was one of the youngsters set to be sent out on loan to gain some first-team experience in the second half of the season, but this callup, which obviously represents important recognition of his impressive performances for Arsenal’s Under-23 side, changed that.

Prediction: Tunisia v England 0

Posted on June 16, 2018 by David Nugent

Verdict: England

Best Odds: 4/9

Bookmaker: Coral

Tunisia and England go head-to-head in Group G of the World Cup, as both teams look to get their campaign off to a winning start. However, this clash will be regarded as the classic World Cup David v Goliath encounter.


Tunisia are back at the World Cup after a 12-year absence. Russia 2018 will be their fifth World Cup appearance, but the North African side have yet to progress past the group stages of the competition.
