Tunisia's Football Federation are expected to name a local coach to lead them to the World Cup finals following the resignation of Henri Michel earlier this week.

At a press conference in Tunis, the FA President Belhassan Fekih said the new coach would be a Tunisian and would be named on Thursday.

The announcement was made 24 hours after Frenchman Henri Michel resigned from the job.

Michel was unhappy about the sacking of his assistant and fellow Frenchman Albert Rust.

Rust was replaced by Ammar Souyah and Khemayes Laabidi who will now take charge of the team for Wednesday's international friendly match against Norway inTunis.

The game is one of four World Cup warm up matches for Africa's representatives on Wednesday.

Senegal play Bolivia in Dakar, South Africa's Bafana Bafana take on Georgeia in Tablisi, and Cameroon play Argentina in Geneva.
