SCHWEINFURT, Germany, June 7 (Reuters) Tunisia striker Issam Jemaa withdrew from the World Cup today after injuring his right knee, a team spokesman said.

Jemaa will be replaced by 21-year-old Chouki Ben Saada who won the under-17 world championship with France in 2001 before switching allegiance to Tunisia.

Jemaa, 22, has 12 caps for Tunisia, having scored once, and had not been expected to be in the starting lineup.

The north African country face Saudi Arabia, Spain and Ukraine in Group H.
