AFCON 2019: Tunisia defender Drager hungry for bronze medal

Tunisia defender Mohamed Drager is hungry to finish the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a medal.

Tunisia slog it out with the Super Eagles in the loser's final for a chance to win the bronze medal.

Drager, who was making his AFCON debut in Egypt, said as professionals, his team must put behind them the semi final defeat to Senegal.

“We are professional players and each of us has to find motivation from within. I don’t think anyone has to struggle to find motivation because as professionals, we must fight to win every game,” Drager told a news conference at the Al Salam Stadium on Tuesday.

“The loss to Senegal in the semi-final was tough but our fans deserve to be happy at the end, so we have to fight and win this game for them.”

Tunisia will have to recover in time for the game after an energy-sapping 120 minutes of football action against Senegal, but Drager believes they will be ready for the game.

“I think we are in similar shape as Nigeria, we don’t have any complaints and we will try to be ready. This is my first competition and I believe I can go back to my club with strong belief after playing for 120 minutes against a player like Saido Mane. I think I have done well.”
