Man of the Match: Yassine Chikhaoui

Tunisia captain Yassine Chikhaoui played a very crucial role in ensuring that Tunisia qualified to the knockout stages after playing to a 1-1 draw against DR Congo on Monday in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 28 year old striker opened the scoring for Tunisia, sending the message loud and clear that they want to advance to the next round.

Despite failing to maintain that lead, Chikhaoui’s efforts never ended as he continued to give the DR Congo defence a hard time and was central to all of Tunisia’s attacks.

If it was not for the DR Congo goalkeeper Tunisia would have scored more goals and it was Chikhaoui who looked dangerous in the final third of the field.
