Roger Lemerre calls up Club Africain goalkeeper Adel Nefzi
Tunisia boss Roger Lemerre has named his final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The domestically-based contingent is composed of 8 players from African champions Etoile du Sahel and four more from other Tunisian club sides.

There is no place for Czech Republic-based Tijani Belaid, who was involved in a car crash on new year's day which left three people dead.

Despite his recent inactivity for French club Toulouse, striker Silva Dos Santos, who scored four goals en route to Tunisia's 2004 Nations Cup success, makes Lemerre's final 23.

Tunisia have been drawn in Group D alongside the Palancas Negras of Angola, the Teranga Lions of Senegal and South Africa's Bafana Bafana.

Squad: Goalkeepers: Hamdi Kasroui (Esperance), Adel Nefzi (Club Africain), Aymen Mathlouthi (Etoile du Sahel)

Defenders: Wissam Abdi (Zamalek, Egypt), Sabeur Ben Frej (Etoile du Sahel), Karim Haggui (Bayer Leverkusen, Germany), Yassine Mikari (Grasshopper Club, Switzerland), Seif Ghezal, Mehdi Meriah, Radhouane Felhi (all Etoile du Sahel), Radhi Jaidi (Birmingham City, England), Wissem Bekri (Esperance)

Midfielders: Chaouki Ben Saada (Bastia, France), Jawhar M'Nari (Nürnberg, Germany), Mehdi Nafti (Birmingham City, England), Kamel Zaiem (Esperance), Chaker Zouaghi (Lokomotiv Moscow, Russia), Majdi Traoui (Etoile du Sahel)

Strikers: Yassine Chikhaoui (FC Zürich, Switzerland), Silva Dos Santos (Toulouse, France), Issam Jemaa (Caen, France), Mohamed Amine Chermiti, Mehdi Ben Dhifallah (both Etoile du Sahel)
