Tunisia World Cup squad includes fit-again Wahbi Khazri

Tunisia arrive in Russia following an unbeaten qualifying campaign. Can the Eagles of Carthage hold their own in Group G?

Tunisia have included Wahbi Khazri, who has battled to overcome a thigh injury over the last month, and fit-again midfielder Mohamed Amine Ben Amor in their final 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Khazri has not played since being injured while playing for Rennes in April, missing Tunisia's two warm-up matches against Portugal and Turkey this week. He has been training apart from the rest of the squad at their Swiss training camp this week.

Khazri is seen as key to any chance the North Africans have of making it through World Cup Group G, in which they face Belgium, England and Panama.

The squad was announced on national television by coach Nabil Maaloul, who must do without winger Youssef Msakni and striker Taha Yassine Khenissi. Msakni recently underwent knee surgery.

Ben Amor suffered a knee injury playing for Tunisia in March, and though the extent of his recovery had been in doubt he proved his fitness over the last week.

Tunisia, who are training in Lausanne, play their last warm-up friendly against Spain in Krasnodar next Saturday before their first Group G game against England on June 18.
