Tunisia kicked off their FIFA Arab Cup campaign with a 5-1 demolition of Mauritania at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium today. The Carthage Eagles showed their class from the begining as they took charge of Group B with UAE and Syria set to play later.

Two goals each from Seifeddine Jaziri and Mohamed Ben Arbi and Yousef Msakni's strike late in the second half ensured victory for the North Africans. 

Molaye Bessam scored a consolation goal for Mauritania in first half stoppage time after VAR controversially awarded a penalty for handball. 

Tunisia will next take on Syria on Friday at the Al Bayt Stadium, while Mauritania will hope to bounce back from this loss against UAE on Friday at Stadium 974.
