Tunisia to host Colombia friendly in Barcelona on March 5

The Carthage Eagles will play Los Cafeteros next month in Spain ahead of the 2014 Fifa World Cup

The Tunisia Football Federation have confirmed its national team will play a friendly match against Colombia on March 5 in Spain, which the South American side intend to use as preparation for the upcoming Fifa World Cup.

Tunisia are still without a head coach since the resignation of caretaker Ruud Krol after the team crashed out of the 2014 World Cup qualifying last year.

Colombia will be doing without star player Radamel Falcao, who is still recovering from knee surgery.

Both teams met last at the 1998 World Cup in France, with the Cafeteros winning by a lone goal.

Colombia will be playing another African team Cote D’Ivoire in the group stage at the World Cup.

Tunisia emerged 44th on the latest Fifa ranking while Colombia dropped one place to finish at number 5.
