Five Senegal v Tunisia facts

15 January 2017, 13:40

Franceville - Five facts for the Africa Cup of Nations Group B match between Senegal and Tunisia in Franceville Sunday (1900 GMT):

-- Hosts Tunisia defeated Senegal 1-0 in an ill-tempered 2004 Cup of Nations quarter-final during which Jawhar Mnari scored the winner and the losers had a player red-carded.

-- Three other matches between the countries in the competition have all been drawn -- 0-0 in Tunisia (1965), 0-0 in Mali (2002) and 2-2 in Ghana (2008).

-- Tunisia used home advantage in 2004 to win the Africa Cup for the only time while Senegal came closest two years before, losing on penalties to Cameroon after a goalless final.
