    WORLD CUP 2006: Tunisia preserve giants' pride
    C`EST DOMMAGE POUR CEUX QUI NE COMPRENNE PA L`ANGLAIS If Africa was stunned to see four nations - Angola, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana and Togo - all qualify for the FIFA World Cup™ finals for the first time, there was nothing surprising about Tunisia securing a third successive finals appearance.

    The Carthage Eagles, who met expectations while the usual big names like Cameroon, Nigeria and South Africa failed to deliver, were the only north African team to earn a ticket to Germany after they won through at the expense of rivals Morocco, the team they also beat in last year's CAF African Cup of Nations final.

    "Morocco are a very tough side, I am sure if they'd been placed in another group they would have easily qualified but unfortunately it was a single-lane road and we were lucky to book it," said Tunisia's French coach, Roger Lemerre, after the neighbours' tense 2-2 draw in Rades on Sunday which confirmed the Tunisians' finals place.

    Bolton Wanderers defender Radhi Jaidi admitted that Tunisia had suffered against the Atlas Lions, falling behind twice in a match they needed only to draw to secure first place in Group 5. "I never felt that we are actually going to Germany until the referee blew his final whistle," he said.

    On the contrary, Abdelmajid Chetali, the coach who led Tunisia to their first FIFA World Cup appearance at Argentina 1978, claimed that he had never had any doubts that Lemerre's men would get the result they needed. "We were playing at home, we only needed a draw, we had beaten them before at that same stadium in the final of the Cup of Nations last year, and technically we have surpassed them since then." Chetali might have added that Tunisia had not lost to Morocco in FIFA World Cup qualifying in the past 45 years.

    Not surprisingly the Tunisian public have lapped up their team's success. The national flag hangs in seemingly every street, adorning the verandas of the characteristic white houses of Tunis, the capital. Tunisia shirts are worn proudly by fans who meet up at the cafes up and down Habib Bourguiba, one of Tunis's most famous streets, to reflect on this latest achievement and talk of next summer when their players will rub shoulders with the world's finest.

    The players themselves have already received some material reward, receiving $100,000 each from the Tunisian Football Federation (FTF) in addition to the usual flood of gifts from companies and offers from potential sponsors. However, there is no disputing the main prize: after impressing at the FIFA Confederations Cup in June, Tunisia's footballers have earned the right to return to Germany where they will hope to do even better.
