Tunisia’s Controversial Goal Celebration Sparks Debate in Friendly Match

Tunisia’s Players Spark Controversy with Goal Celebration Against Egypt

Tunisia’s players sparked controversy over the way they celebrated their third goal against their Egyptian counterparts during Tuesday night’s friendly, which ended 3-1 to the Carthage Eagles.

Tunisia’s stars were keen to celebrate the occasion in the same way as Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah celebrated with the Reds by scoring the third goal in the final minutes of the match.

Tunisia’s Celebration Mirrors Mohamed Salah’s Famous “Yoga” Celebration

Salah was known for his famous “yoga” celebration, where he stood in front of Liverpool fans and raised his left leg to the knee on his right leg. This position is known in yoga as “tree” and indicates balance and stability.

Tunisia Hands Egypt First Defeat under Rui Vitoria

The Carthage Eagles handed Egypt their first defeat since Portuguese Rui Vitoria took over as coach from 2022 as the Portuguese coach made the best start for a Pharaohs coach, winning 8 matches in a row before losing in today’s match against Tunisia.

Rui Vitoria’s Reaction and Egypt’s Consecutive Defeats to Tunisia

Vitoria said during the post-match press conference, commenting on the third goal celebration: “The opponents are celebrating the goal as if it were a final match. At the moment, the clubs have rested players.”

The Portuguese coach explained: “We are outraged by the defeat, as are our players. I will not discuss the crisis of the Al Ahly players as it is related to public order.”

This is Egypt’s second consecutive defeat to Tunisia after losing 1-0 in the 2022 Arab Cup semi-finals.
