Tunisia head coach Alain Giresse is keen to guide the Carthage Lions to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title in Egypt.

The experienced French tactician has coached at the continental tournament on five different occasions.

Giresse is now hoping to ensure that Tunisia clinches their second AFCON title having won their first trophy in 2004 as tournament hosts.

“This is my fifth final phase. We know how to approach and prepare for these group matches," Giresse told Goal.

"We are increasingly familiar with African football also with opponents we usually play. These are details that should not be overlooked,” he continued.

“Do you think a coach needs his leaders to tell him to win? Everyone on the final stage lives to make the best result," he added.

"We cannot limit our ambition and be satisfied to leave the group. We will be fine. We want to go as far as possible in this Africa Cup of Nations.”

Tunisia are in Group E alongside Angola, Mali and Mauritania.
