Tunisian goalkeeper Mouez Hassen expressed his dissatisfaction yesterday in the round of 16 against Ghana after being replaced just before the shootout. The Guardian of the Carthage Eagles apologized on Twitter for his behavior.
Tunisian goalkeeper Mouez Hassen, furious that he was replaced the day before the Carthage Eagles penalty shootout, repented on Tuesday for his "Regrettable reaction" on Twitter.
"I want to go back to yesterday's incident and I will begin by apologizing to my coach, my teammates and all the supporters of the national team.", writes Hassen, putting his "Regrettable reaction" under the stroke of "Pressure of the fatherland".
After expressing his refusal to leave the field with no help from the finger, the goalkeeper from Nice almost came back directly to the locker room when Alain Giresse asked for his replacement by Farouk Ben Mustapha in Tunisian goals for the shootout on goal against Ghana (1-1, 5-4 tab) in the round of 16.
Mood gestures of no consequence as his substitute stopped a decisive Ghanaian shot and propelled Tunisia into quarters. "(I) pledge to have a positive attitude and a spirit of cohesion for the rest of my journey with the Carthage Eagles"promises the goalkeeper 24 years less than 48 hours in the quarter-final against Madagascar.
