Tunisia and Democratic Republic of Congo will meet up in Saturday’s final friendly match of the day featuring African national teams with plenty to watch for. Following a massively disappointing Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign that saw the Leopards crash and burn in their failure to make it to the next edition in Cameroon. As a result, Argentinian manager Hector Cuper has been brought in to improve the team’s organization and most importantly, their results. Foot.cd reports on the buildup to the match with assistant coach Daoula Lopembe stating that the team has been examined to the closest degree for improvements to be made while star striker Cedric Bakambu remarked that the highest priority now is preparing for the start of World Cup qualifying in September.

Manager Mondher Kebaïer will use the occasion to examine some young talented players who are making their name in European football, which includes Hannibal Majbri of Manchester United as well as Amor Rekik of Arsenal.
