World Cup 2022: Tunisia vs France is special for Wahbi Khazri

World Cup 2022: Tunisia vs France is special for Wahbi Khazri

Before opting for the Tunisian selection, Wahbi Khazri represented France in youth. So inevitably, the reunion against the Blues in the last game in pool D will be special for the 31-year-old striker.

After a draw against Denmark (0-0) and a defeat against Australia (1-0), Wahbi Khazri and Tunisia are forced to perform against France in their last game in Group D, to hope for qualification to the Round of 16. If the stakes are high for the Carthage Eagles, they are a little more for the Montpellier striker.

Born in Corsica and having represented France in youth teams, Wahbi Khazri is despite his reduced playing time in the tournament an executive of the Tunisian selection. Before the start of the World Cup, the player who played for Bastia, Rennes, Saint-Etienne and Sunderland expressed himself in an interview with the media of Ligue 1.

"I wanted to be in the group of France before the draw. It is a dream that will come true. We will play against great players. It's a game that will be broadcast around the world and, especially, in France, where I live, so it will be nice. To show what you can do against a big team and big players, that's what you want in your career. I think I'm rather loved in Tunisia," said the 31-year-old striker.

He continued: "I try to represent the country in France every weekend by performing well. After, I also have the chance to represent Corsica, because I was born there. I have a lot of flags on my shoulders, it's nice. When people talk about me, I like to hear: 'Wahbi, the Corsican, Wahbi, the Tunisian'. I think it's nice to see my origins put forward. I am 100% Tunisian, 100% French and 100% Corsican. I have no embarrassment about that."
