This will be the fifth World Cup that the North African country contests, although the team is yet to make it out of the group stages.
Tunisia made history at the 1978 World Cup held in Argentina by becoming the first African side to win a World Cup match, beating Mexico 3 – 1.
They have since qualified for the tournaments in 1998 (France), 2002 (South Korea/Japan), 2006 (Germany) and the 2018 finals in Russia.
Tunisian football is reputed on the African continent, with both club and national teams dominating other African sides. The national team won the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations when Tunisia hosted the tournament.
The Eagles of Carthage, coached by Nabil Maaloul, qualified at the expense of Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya and Guinea.
