Our Prediction about Tunisia at FIFA World Cup 2022
Tunisia will compete in the World Cup for the sixth time.
Eagles of Carthage hasn’t made any progress since 1998. Despite just winning two of 15 games in their previous four outings, they were sent home early each time.
Tunisia is one among the underdogs in Group D, which also contains France, Australia, Denmark, and other underdogs. If Jaleel Kadri’s team were to defeat France or Denmark, there is no space for error.
If Tunisia wins Group D, they will advance to the next round, where they will face either Mexico or Poland. Depending on who finishes second in Group A, the Group B winners and Group A runners-up will face either England, the United States, the Netherlands, or Senegal. Tunisia will face either Spain, Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Portugal, or Uruguay in the semi-finals, depending on which group they advance from.
The second-place squad from Group D, led by Jalel Kadri, might face Lionel Messi and Argentina in the quarterfinals. They will face the Group A winner or the Group B second-place team, as well as the Netherlands, England, Senegal, and the United States. The quarterfinals are not very safe.
Jalel Kadri clearly prefers a 4-1-4-1 formation at the African Cup of Nations. Ghaylen Chaaleli and Ellyes Skhiri tried to keep the back four intact after Dylan Bronn was sent off against Brazil.
Tunisia may opt for a 4-3-3 formation if Yousseff Msakni and Wahbi Khazri can assist Seifeddine Jaziri on the attack.
How many players will be in Tunisia’s World Cup squad?
Because the COVID-19 virus was so prevalent last summer, teams were limited to 26 participants for the European Championship. The Copa America, on the other hand, has the option of inviting 28 players.
Each national team’s roster will increase from 23 to 26 players for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
How Many Football World Cups has Tunisia won?
Tunisia has participated in five FIFA World Cups, twenty Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, and four Olympic football events. But they have never won the World Cup.
