Jemaa wants good start

16 January 2013 15:27

Tunisia striker Issam Jemaa says his side must win their opening Africa Cup of Nations clash against Algeria to progress from the group stage.

Tunisia have been drawn alongside the Ivory Coast, Togo and Algeria in Group D and the 28-year-old is well aware of the task ahead in a competitive group.

"If we want to get off to a good start we have to win the first game," he told FIFA.com.

"Victory against Algeria will give us a big confidence boost. All the matches in this group will be equally difficult and the odds are pretty much even."

Much of Tunisia's goal scoring burden will fall on the shoulders of Jemaa, as his nation's all-time top goalscorer, and he admits he is hoping to put on a special display for his country when they play Algeria on Tuesday in South Africa.

"I first took part in the Africa Cup of Nations in 2006 and I have some amazing memories of the competition, even though I was on the fringes of the side back then," he said.

"The competition has its own special flavour, and I hope I can put on a great performance in South Africa."
