Egyptian Premier League trio lead Tunisia squad for Brazil friendly

Must Read

Tunisia will face Brazil in Paris, five days after playing Comoros in another friendly.

Experienced left-back Maaloul, who plays for Cairo giants Ahly, has played 81 international games with Tunisia so far while Zamalek duo Mathlouthi, a right-back, and Jaziri have earned 28 and 36 caps respectively.

The call-up of the Zamalek pair poses a problem for Zamalek as they are scheduled to face Chad’s Elect-Sport in the African Champions League preliminary round on 25 September, two days before the Brazil friendly.

Tunisia’s 29-man roster also included French-born player Chaim El Djebali, who plays for the U-19 team of French side Olympique Lyonnais.

The 18-year-old represented France’s U-16 side but he is yet to make his senior team debut.

Tunisia were drawn in Group D of the World Cup along with Denmark, France and Australia.

Goalkeepers: Bechir Ben Said (US Monastir), Aymen Dahmen (CS Sfaxien), Mohamed Sedki Debchi (Esperance)
