Confirmed Line-Ups: FIFA World Cup, Tunisia v England, Group G

Posted: 18 June 2018 Time: 19:00

Tunisia will be aiming to secure their first win at the FIFA World Cup since 1978 as they take on England in their Group G opener at the Volgograd Arena tonight - here are the confirmed line-ups of both sides. 

Despite being the first African side to record a World Cup victory back in 1978 in Mexico, the North Africans have yet to register three points at the global showpiece since then.

However, the highest ranked country from the continent (21st) will be confident of creating an upset, with star playmaker Wahbi Khazri set to be available.

The former Sunderland midfielder has extensive knowledge of English football as the Carthage Eagles aim to be the first African side to register a point at Russia 2018.

Meanwhile, The Three Lions will start their campaign with minimum expectations given their youthful squad selected by manager Gareth Southgate, unlike in editions gone by with relentless media hype.

Here is how both teams line up:

Tunisia XI: Hassen, S. Ben Youssef, Meriah, F. Ben Youssef, Badri, Khazri, Bronin, Maaloul, Sassi, Skhiri, Sliti

England XI: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Henderson, Dele, Lingard, Young; Sterling, Kane.
