Mejbri, who has played 15 times for Birmingham, is part of a 26-man squad with a lot of experience for Tunisia.

He has the faith of coach Jalel Kadri, and will get the chance to learn from veterans such as co-captains Wahbi Khazri and Youssef Msakni.

“The list can only have 26 players on it. There will always be mixed reactions.”
