El Mizouni Nets But Tunisia Olympic Team Defeated in Egypt
Thursday, 15th Nov 2018 16:22
Academy midfielder Idris El Mizouni netted his first international goal as Tunisia’s Olympic side were beaten 4-1 by Egypt in a friendly in Alexandria this afternoon.
El Mizouni put his team in front in the 17th minute but Mustapha Mohamed netted in the 25th and 29th minutes to give the home team a half-time lead, then Karim Iraki increased the margin on 90 and Nasser Mansi added the fourth in injury time.
The 18-year-old, who was winning his second cap for the U23s side, also had another goal ruled out for offside.
The teams meet again in another friendly on Sunday, a game organised at short notice after Algeria pulled out of a fixture with Egypt planned for Monday.
El Mizouni who was born in France but qualifies for Tunisia via his father, has made an impressive start to the season with Town in the U18s and U23s and TWTD understands he has been offered a professional contract.
The match was part of the squad’s preparations for the qualifiers for the African U23 Nations Cup, which will be held in Egypt in November 2019 and forms the qualifying process for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
