Tunisia's striker Fakhreddine Ben Youssef said on Wednesday that his side have benefited from the poor performance of the Egyptian defense that allowed his side to win their second Group G game in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Wednesday.
Tunisia stunned Egypt on Wednesday with a 1-0 win at the army-owned Air defence Stadium in Cairo on Wednesday.
Fakhreddine Ben Youssef skipped past the lethargic Ahmed Okka with a smart move to break clear and place a curling shot into the bottom corner after going one-on-one with Ekramy after 14 minutes in what proved to be the winner.
"We benefited from Egypt's defensive lapses," Ben Youssef told Bein Sports after the game.
"We played a good game and we followed the instructions of the coach who asked us to exploit the Egyptian defensive mistakes."
The club Sfaxien striker believes Wednesday's win will boost his side's chances of reaching next year's Nations Cup finals in Morocco after they bagged maximum six points from two games.
Tunisia are second in Group G, behind Senegal on goal difference after the latter claimed a 2-0 away victory over Botswana on Wednesday.
