The winners in 2004, Tunisia are expected to pose a threat in this year's Africa Cup of Nations. Sports Mole assesses their chances in the tournament.

The 2004 winners Tunisia will be expected to go far in this year's tournament due to the experience of their squad.

However, Sami Trabelsi's team came second in Group K to surprise package Botswana.

The Eagles will have one eye on rivals Morocco, who will be looking to avenge their 2004 final defeat when they meet in the group stages.

Group: C

Players to watch out for:

Issam Jemaa

Tunisia's all-time leading goalscorer with 26 goals in 57 appearances, the Auxerre striker is expected to add to his tally at the tournament.

Karim Haggui

The most-capped player in the squad, the captain can also chip in with the occasional goal. His experience of European football will be needed to combat Morocco's attacking threat in the group stages.

Previous best: Winners 2004

Odds to win outright: 11/1

Sports Mole says: Quarter-finals
