The Tunisian Football Federation (FTF) on Friday accepted the 45-year-old's request to have his contract terminated and subsequently published a shortlist of three possible successors.

A statement on the federation's official website read: "The FTF acknowledges the request of coach Sami Trabelsi for an amicable termination of his contract and agrees to the termination accordingly."

The FTF said a decision would be reached on Trabelsi's replacement after three candidates had been interviewed.

The statement continued: "After a discussion and exchange of views the following coaches are under consideration to manage the national team: Khaled Ben Yahia, Nabil Maaloul and Maher Kenzari."

Tunisia beat north African rivals Algeria 1-0 in the Group D opener but a 3-0 defeat to Ivory Coast and a 1-1 draw with Togo denied them a place in the last eight.

Trabelsi led the Eagles of Carthage to the quarter-final stage during last year's tournament in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, where they were knocked out by Ghana.
