The Tunisian national team, ranked first at the continental level, continues his role despite his tie against Mauritania in the fourth round, stressing that he is one of the great candidates to compete for one of the five cards allocated to Africa, especially since he will not face Algeria and Morocco in the play-off match to which the Moroccan team officially qualified after four victories.

No, a historical achievement from a technical point of view opens the door to another Arab endeavor to organize the global event in the Levant or the Maghreb, and why not achieve the dream of coronation that Belmadi talked about to the French media with all the madness with which he is going through his experience with the African champion.
