Tunisia suffer Osaka nightmare
There was little for coach Souayah to smile about
Tunisia's run of awful performances in their World Cup warm-up programme continued as they lost 3-0 to Japanese club side Gamba Osaka.

The defeat was the Carthage Eagles' second to a J-League side in as many games, having previously lost 2-1 to Oita Trinta.

Osaka were in control of the match from the 20th minute, when Nakayama put them ahead, and Tunisia's injury-hit team were never able to offer much in reply.

Fuugawa scored again for the hosts halfway into the second half, and the humiliation was complete when Ooguro wrapped it up on 76 minutes.

Coach Ammar Souayah now has only one game left - against Denmark on Sunday - to try and get a victory to boost morale.

But there may be little chance of that against the former European champions if the side continues to perform as poorly as it presently is.

That would mean Tunisia would be without a victory against an international side all year going into their first World Cup game, against Russia on 5 June.
