Nabil Maaloul feared he would have to make do without Ghaylen Chaaleli at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ after the midfielder injured his ankle in February. However, following several tests and a long period of physiotherapy, Chaaleli was able to recover in time for Tunisia's return to the global stage. 

He certainly merits his place, having played a major role in Tunisia's qualification – despite only making his debut last year. The box-to-box player contested the Carthage Eagles' last four qualifiers and scored the winning goal in the 2-1 victory against Congo DR that all but secured their ticket to Russia.
