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
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.
