Flag: A red background with a star and crescent in the middle as a nod to the Ottoman Empire. Stylish.

Population: 11.4 million

Nickname: The Eagles of Carthage, although the Eagles of Carnage would be better, even if it sounds like a death metal band.

Manager: Previously the coach of Kuwait and a man capped 74 times by Tunisia, Nabil Maaloul.

Captain: It’s their experienced goalkeeper Aymen Mathlouthi.

Star Man: All of Tunisia’s goal hopes will rest with Youssef Msakni.  The Al-Duhail striker has 14 goals in his 51 caps. Look out too for midfielder Wahbi Khazri.  You may remember him from his time with Sunderland but he’s currently on loan at Rennes in France.

Rising Star: Twenty-two year-old Dylan Bronn.
