World Cup Spotlight: The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia

Now, Tunisia is preparing for this month's World Cup in Qatar. Sonny Young spoke with VOA Muqbil Yabarow about Tunisia's top players; the team's chances of beating Australia, Denmark and defending world champion France in group play; and Tunisia's close cultural and economic ties with World Cup host Qatar.
