Jalel Kadri, Tunisia’s head coach has revealed that his main aim in this year’s world cup in Qatar, is to see his team qualify for the Knockout stages at the tournament, for the very first time, since 1978.
According to him, it’s his ambition, and if that doesn’t happen, then he has failed in his mission, which is to get his team past the group stages in the world cup no matter how difficult it might be.
He further said that this is an ambition that he considers very real, and he is going to make sure he orientates his players to develop a Positive mindset, no matter how difficult the tournament turns out to be.
“It’s my ambition. If we don’t get through, I will not have succeeded in my mission, despite how tough the task is,” Kadri said.
“We want to make our dream come true and get through to the knockout round at the sixth time of asking.
“We’re very realistic. Nevertheless, I will pass on to the players a message of optimism and ambition, even though I know the mission is difficult. The most important thing is to know how to cope with the difficult moments in a game,” Kadri said.
Tunisia shares the same group alongside France, Denmark, and Australia at this year’s edition of the world cup. They are to face Denmark in their opener of the 2022 world cup on Nov 22.
Kadri who led the 2004 AFCON winners to win the Kirin Cup is determined to see that they progress to the Knockout stages of the World Cup.
