Dundee United could have a representative at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Tunisia have named Bilel Mohsni in their provisional squad for the championships, which kicks off on June 14.
The 30-year-old has already played for his country six times, including a qualifier for the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
If selected for the full squad, the calibre of opposition will be in stark contrast to what he’s come up against this season in the SPFL Championship.
He could be getting to grips with the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling for England, while he could also be trying to stop Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne against Belgium.
Panama, the final team in Group G, might provide less of a test than the other two.
Soon to be out of contract Mohsni has been a standout performer for United since joining in March.
Boss Csaba Laszlo said a trip to the World Cup would only benefit the defender.
He said previously: “This can be a great development for him. You see how important the name Dundee United is in Europe and it is important players who come here can make the World Cups.”
Mohsni has been picked for the 29-man provisional squad, which will be whittled down to 23 to be announced on June 4.
Meanwhile, the other Tunisian to play in Dundee, Sofien Moussa appears to have been overlooked despite being the Dark Blues top scorer.
The 30-year-old netted 12 times in the Premiership and League Cup for the Dens Park side – but that was enough to earn a call up for his country.
