AFCON 2012: Niger Vs Tunisia (1 - 2) On January 27th 2012 by mukina2: 6:49am On Jan 27, 2012
After looking completely lost in their maiden Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) appearance, Niger are out to prove that they are a much better team than what they showed during the 2-0 loss to co-hosts Gabon. The Mena qualified ahead of the likes of Egypt and South Africa, leading many to expect much more of them despite their lack of tournament experience

Coach Harouna Doula Gabde will have to deal with the loss of Tidjani Amadou Moutari, whose substitute appearance against the Panthers lasted only six minutes before he was stretchered off with a broken leg.

While Moutari has already left Gabon to undergo an operation in France, another player in the squad, midfielder Moussa Maazou, is suffering from an ankle sprain but will probably pass fit in time for the game.

Unlike their opponents, the Carthage Eagles are coming into this encounter in high spirits after obtaining a valuable opening win against north African rivals Morocco. The Tunisians rode their luck at times but their counter-attacking strategy paid dividends.

Against Niger, they will have to employ a more expansive attacking approach as they will be the technically superior side and will much prefer to have their final Group C match against the co-hosts be a formality rather than a must win game.
Though many expected that Sami Trabelsi would switch out his right and left-backs, Ammar Jemal and Bilel Ifa, for the more attacking options of Khalil Chammam and Anis Boussaidi, the latest from Libreville is that the coach looks more likely to stick with the same back four he used against Morocco, while giving them a bit more license to roam forward.

Meanwhile, an injury to Saber Khlifa may see Amine Chermiti start at centre-forward, and goalscorer Youssef Msakni is expected to take Sami Allaguiā€™s spot on
