TU­NISIA

Daily Mail - - World Cup 2018 -

THE BOSS NA­BIL MAALOUL

Now in his fifth spell with Tu­nisia, win­ning the Africa Cup of Na­tions as as­sis­tant in 2014.

THE STAR WAHBI KAZRI

The for­ward scored nine goals in 17 games on loan at Rennes from Sun­der­land this sea­son — though he is re­cov­er­ing from in­jury.

THE PROSPECT DY­LAN BRONN

French-born de­fender, 22, who mod­els his game on Brazil’s Thi­ago Silva.

KEY STRENGTH

Their whole back four are so big phys­i­cally they could pass as cen­tre halves. Eng­land’s for­wards may find them dif­fi­cult to break down.

BIG­GEST WEAK­NESS

Their most creative player, Youssef Msakni, is in­jured. Maaloul said re­cently: ‘It’s as if Ar­gentina was play­ing with­out Messi.’
