Tunisian international striker Sami Allagui spoke to Mosaique FM about his joy at having finally scored his first goal in national team colors during his side’s impressive outing versus the Sudan on Thursday.
Allagui was the beneficiary of great work by Hertha
Berlin’s Amine Chermiti who unselfishly offered him the ball in space when he
could have easily gone for goal himself. After scoring, the Greuther Furth
striker went directly to his team-mate to thank him for making the correct
“It’s a very happy birthday for me here in Tunis. I’ve
given myself pleasure. I’m going home with the family to celebrate my debut in
front of the Rades supporters. We dominated the match like we wanted to and I
think our performances was superb,” he exclaimed in his post match interview.
The player opted for Tunisia in November of last
year when he took part in the North African country’s goalless draw versus
Ghana in Accra despite being heavily solicited by Germany given the fact that
he is a dual citizen. He has been included in Humberto Coelho's 25 man roster for Tunisia's June qualifiers versus Mozambique and Nigeria.
