Tunisia were a power in the early years of the Africa Cup of Nations, reaching the semifinals at their first try in 1962 and finishing runners-up in 1965.

But there followed 31 barren years, punctuated only by a semifinal appearance in 1978 and just two more first round exits.

They finished runners-up to hosts South Africa in 1996, and followed that up with a quarterfinal showing in 1998 and the semifinals in 2000.

But the country's finest hour in the competition came in 2004 as they beat Morocco 2-1 in the final of a tournament they hosted to achieve a maiden continental success.

Since then they have had a pair of quarterfinal finishes, and will be hoping to do better than that in Angola, to try and make up for the disappointment of missing out on a World Cup place on the final day of qualifying. They will play their 50th finals match in their first game in Angola.
