Tunisia have named Wahbi Khazri on their final 23-man squad for the World Cup despite his struggle to recover from a thigh injury.
Khazri has been out of action since April and missed both of Tunisia’s World Cup warm-ups this month. But still, the Sunderland loanee, currently playing for Rennes in Ligue 1, remains an integral part of Tunisia boss Nabil Maaloul’s plans in Russia.
