Hassen was a surprise pick to start the Carthage Eagles' opener against England, but lasted just 16 minutes before being replaced after picking up a shoulder injury.
On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the stopper's tournament was over, although the goalkeeper has taken to Twitter to thank Maaloul for allowing him to realise a lifelong dream.

5 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

Mexico soccer fans flooded the streets of Mexico City to watch their long-shot game against Germany. Two monitoring systems picked up an artificial temblor during the celebration of Mexico's first and only goal.

France vs. Denmark - 6/26/18 World Cup Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

5 monthes ago   |   By Sportschatplace

The final matchday of group C pits group leader France against Denmark from the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow.
France comes into this matchup already having booked their spot in the round of 16 with a second straight win, their most recent coming in the form of a 1-0 win over Peru on Thursday to sit at 6 points looking down on the rest of Group C. Kylian Mbappe gave Les Bleus the lead 34 minutes into the match with a tap in off of a deflected shot, and that's all the French would need to seal the victory. It wasn't easy however, as France has to endure 56% possession from the Peruvians, but...

5 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

MOSCOW - Mexico's incontestable win over Germany is making it think its goal for Russia 2018 is not just to play a fifth game. It is to reach the final.

Opposition scouting report: How can Nigeria beat Iceland?

5 monthes ago   |   By ESPN

Iceland became the smallest nation to qualify for the World Cup after a remarkable few years, and the heroics of Euro 2016 proved that they can do it against some of the world's top sides.
They held Argentina in their opener, showcasing their qualities of spirit, work ethic and synergy, and represent a really tough test for Nigeria in the Super Eagles' second group game.
Their main player, Gylfi Sigurdsson, may only just be coming back from injury, but it's unlikely to faze Iceland too much.
