The delegation joined its place of residence in Rustenburg, where the Carthage Eagles begin their final training sessions before the big day.
Just before leaving for the country of Nelson Mandela, the President of the Tunisian Football Federation, Al Wadii Jarii, confided to Attounissia chain. Al Jarii returned to the preparation of the Eagles and the friendly match delivered against Ghana :
"I think we have the record of preparation matches played. I had a meeting with the technical staff which found that the level of the team was not great technically but the preparation was good. The staff also admitted that it has registered the courses needed and he gave them during the friendly matches played, the playing time for all players while hiding his cards. Regarding the match played against Ghana, the team's performance was, in my opinion, acceptable for about 55 minutes and what happened later allowed the coach to identify some gaps. "
