Tunisia make Afcon squad changes


The Tunisia Football Federation announced that Souissi, a defender with Club African, replaces French-born defender David Jemmali from Bordeaux who has a torn calf muscle.

Ben Dhifallah, from African Champions League winners Etoile Sahel, comes in for Turkish-based striker Ali Zitouni, who officials said was suffering from a groin injury.

Coach Roger Lemerre named a 27-man squad last month for his preparations ahead of the Nations Cup, which starts in Ghana on Jan 20.

Tunisia play a warm-up friendly against Zambia at home at Rades on Sunday.
