Tunisia & Hertha BSC’s Ben-Hatira Out of Afcon 2015

Tunisia will be without midfielder Änis Ben-Hatira at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), the North African’s football federation has confirmed.

A toe joint injury has prevented Ben-Hatira from training with the Carthage Eagles’ squad in Monastir, thereby ruling him out of the finals in Equatorial Guinea.

“Medical scans revealed that the player will not be ready for the tournament as he needs more time to recover,” The Tunisian Football Federation official website revealed on Monday.

Meanwhile, Tunisia coach, George Leekens, has recalled Club Africain attacking midfielder Tijani Belaid to replace Ben-Hatira in the Tunisian camp.
