Tunisia's Mouez Hassen offers heartfelt thanks to Maaloul

Tunisia goalkeeper Mouez Hassen has taken to social media to pay tribute to his coach Nabil Maaloul after injury prematurely ended the stopper's World Cup.

Many of the goals conceded have come from set-pieces, with Cristiano Ronaldo's header from a corner-kick knocking...

Africa showing few signs of World Cup breakthrough

Not even a win for Senegal in their first Group H in Moscow on Tuesday could temper an otherwise disaster-filled opening six days of the tournament for African hopes.

Five defeats in the six games featuring African teams offered little hope of new benchmarks being set, with Senegal's 2-1 triumph over Poland the only bright...
