Youssef Msakni, a Tunisian and Arab player, survived a cruciate ligament injury.
Al-Masakni was injured during the Al-Arabi match against Umm Salal in the seventh round of the Qatari League, which ended in a positive tie with one goal for each team.
And the Tunisian Football Association said in a statement: “Directly from a private clinic from Tunisia, there was no injury at the level of the crossed cruciate ligaments in the diagnosis of Youssef Msakni’s injury.”
Upon his arrival from Qatar a while ago, Youssef Msakni is currently undergoing in one of the private clinics in Tunisia the necessary tests to diagnose the injury he suffered in the interview he had with his team yesterday in the framework of the Qatari championship.
Msakni is waiting to determine the nature of his injury and the duration of his absence to determine his final position on participating with his country in the 2022 World Cup.
And the Qatari “Al-Kass” channels indicated earlier that the initial examinations that Youssef Al-Maskani underwent, proved that there was no rupture of the cruciate ligament.
While “BN Sports” indicated that the player left Doha, the Qatari capital, heading to his country, Tunisia, for new medical examinations.
Qatar will host the 2022 World Cup between November and December.
Tunisia is in Group D, along with France, Australia and Denmark.
It is noteworthy that Msakni suffered a cruciate ligament injury, which was absent from the Tunisian national team at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
