Int’l friendly:Tunisia, Gabon settle for draw

Tunisia warmed up for next week's Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday with a  1-1 draw against Gabo in a friendly played in Abu Dhabi.

It was however an unconvincing performance from Tunisia who have been drawn in Group D alongside Algeria, Togo and Ivory Coast.


The Carthage Eagles who won the competition on home soil in 2004 took the lead after just 15 minutes through Saber Khlifa.

Six minutes after the break, the Gabonese - who co-hosted last year's Nations Cup alongside E. Guinea drew level as Johan Lengoualama profited from some sloppy defending.

Meanwhile, Gabon's Panthers - who could have led through Martin Essono shortly after their goal - will miss out on the tournament after losing out to the Togolese in qualifying.

Tunisia will next face Ghana in Abu Dhabi on Sunday before flying off to South Africa for the 2013 Nations Cup.
