thumbnail Hello,

The Carthage Eaglets are set to host Syria in Tunis before traveling to Ramallah to play against Palestine next month.

The Tunisian football federation has announced that the Olympic national team is to face both the Syrian and Palestinian national teams as part of their preparations for the Mediterranean games in Pescara which begin on June 26th.

The match against Syria is scheduled for June 7th in Tunis while the one against Palestine will be played on either the 11th or 12th of June in Ramallah. The team recently suffered an unexpected loss to Malta by the score of 2-1 and will be looking to show that the result was nothing more than an accident prior to the important regional competition.
