Tunisia will be at the 2022 FIFA World Cup for the second consecutive edition and they will be desperate to improve on their performance from 2018.

Now, they have another crack at the World Cup and this time they will be up against France, Australia and Denmark in Group D.

Here are the 26 players tasked with doing the business.
