Tunisia coach Sami Trabelsi insists his side are focused ahead of their must-win match against Togo at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Trabelsi’s men are equal on points with Togo but, due to an inferior goal difference, only victory on Wednesday will see them progress out of Group D.

The 2004 champions have scored just one goal in the tournament so far and there is talk of disunity in the Tunisian camp, speculation Trabelsi was quick to deny.

“Despite all the rumours, the Tunisian team is really focused,” he said.

“We are working well, there is a good chemistry between the players, everybody is healthy except Youssef Msakni who has got a pretty strong flu, but he will train again with the group today. Otherwise everybody is fine.”

Although he could for forgiven for making changes to his struggling side, Trabelsi is keen to continue with the same core of players he has selected in the first two matches with the 44-year-old hinting at only a handful of changes.

“I think we can’t do a full turnover,” he said.

“We have 23 players, and the 23 can’t play. We always keep the backbone of the team but we may change one or two players depending on how the game goes but otherwise we don’t change the team.”
