Tunisia suffer surprise home defeat

TUNIS - Tunisia suffered a surprise 2-1 home defeat by Gambia in their African Nations Cup warm-up international in Tunis on Saturday.

It was a disappointing start for new coach Faouzi Benzarti, brought in after Tunisia narrowly missed out on World Cup qualification.

Benzarti's side were 2-0 down before Amine Chermiti netted a consolation deep into stoppage-time.

Tunisia open their African Nations Cup finals campaign on Wednesday when they take on Group D rivals Zambia in Lubango, Angola.
