TUNISIA Squad FIFA World Cup 2022

Tunisia aren’t heading to Qatar with any great faith that a miracle will happen, but the African national has steadily grown in recent years. Hannibal Mejbri has the talent to be perhaps the nation’s greatest ever player, and the fact he elected to play for Tunisia over France could be a major turning point in the team’s fortunes.

Tunisia made it to back-to-back World Cups thanks to a final qualifying-round win against Mali, booking what will be a sixth appearance at the finals of the tournament. The North Africans will look to progress to the knockout stages for the first time.

Most of the squad is based around Europe, with Montpellier forward Wahbi Khazri their chief creator, while Manchester United youngster Hannibal Mejbri, on loan at Birmingham, is one of the names to look out for who could be set for a breakthrough tournament.

The Eagles of Carthage are embarking on a new era in time for World Cup 2022, with coach Jalel Kadri in charge. Formerly assistant, Kadri was handed the top job by the Tunisia Football Federation in January — replacing Mondher Bebaier, who paid the price for a below-expectation performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.
