A 42-member delegation of Athletique Bizertin Football Club of Tunisia will arrive Lagos on Thursday morning. They will head for Warri, Delta State, where the team will face Warri Wolves in the first leg of CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday.
According to the media manager of Warri Wolves, Moses Etu, the Tunisian delegation includes 20 players; the oldest of which is Bejaoui Hassen, born in February 1974; while the youngest is Kchok Slimane, born in July, 1994.

Meanwhile, Warri Wolves officials have intensified efforts to see that the team is in great shape before the crucial encounter as the Tunisians are known to be a hard nut to crack judging from the matches they have played so far.
“We have to double our efforts to see that we get a favourable result and this is first leg so we need to score goals. The available information at our disposal confirmed that they are good and are currently doing well in their league but we are going to do our best,” said Coach Paul Aigbogun, who is having his second stint with the Wolves.
