Just like Mouez Hassen, Ellyes Skhiri and Saif-Eddine Khaoui, Yohan Benalouane was born in France but recently chose to wear the colours of Tunisia. In fact, the imposing centre-half could have played for the North Africans as early as 2010, but a vaccination problem forced him to miss out. 

Eight years later, he has finally become part of the Tunisian national squad, having made one appearance for France’s U-21 side and earned a surprise English Premier League winners’ medal with Leicester City in the meantime. His career abroad, during which he has starred for Italian sides Cesena, Parma, Atalanta and Fiorentina, as well as Leicester, makes Benalouane one of the most experienced heads in the Tunisian camp, despite being one of its least capped players.
