Zamalek striker Seifeddine Jaziri continued his impressive run with the Tunisian national team as he found the net in their 2-1 win over the Equatorial Guinea in the Nations Cup qualifiers on Sunday.

The 28-year-old notched home as early as the fourth minute after being released by a pass from club teammate Ferjani Sassi.

This goal is the third for Jaziri with Tunisia following his double against Libya in their previous Nations Cup qualifier on Thursday.

Tunisia secured their place in next year's Africa Cup of Nations as they lead Group J with 16 points.  

Jaziri, who made his Tunisia debut in January 2016 in a friendly against Guinea, has made five appearances with the Carthage Eagles so far.

He joined Egyptian side Tanta in the summer of 2017 before moving back to his homeland with Stade Gabsien the following summer.

In January 2019, Jaziri returned to Egypt to join Arab Contractors, where he excelled. 

After the sudden departure of Zamalek 's rising striker Mostafa Mohamed, the White Knights signed Jaziri on a year-and-a-half loan deal in January. However, he is yet to establish himself with the popualr Cairo club.
