Tunisia Coach Maaloul Apologises After World Cup Ouster

Coach Nabil Maaloul has apologised to Tunisian fans for the poor performance in their 5-2 loss to Belgium on Saturday.

It was Tunisia’s second loss of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, effectively ruling them out of the competition.

Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored twice while substitute Michy Batshuayi sealed the win in stoppage time for the Red Devils.

“As expected, it was a very difficult match. Ever since we were drawn into this group we knew Belgium were going to be a tough opponent.

“We would like to apologise to the Tunisian fans who were numerous in the stadium today.

“However, we did our best and we will try to improve our performance in the future.”

Tunisia will face Panama in their last group game next Wednesday.
