Tunisia striker Santos out of Spain game
SCHWEINFURT, Germany, June 16 (Reuters) Tunisia's leading striker Francileudo Dos Santos will miss Monday's World Cup Group H match with Spain and has only a 50 percent chance of playing against Ukraine, the team said today.
Santos injured his shin in their final friendly against a German select side on June 7 before the tournament began.
The Brazilian-born player has scored 18 goals in 28 matches for Tunisia since switching allegiance at the start of 2004, including one in the 2004 African Nations Cup final win over Morocco and six in their World Cup qualifying campaign.
The north African side drew 2-2 with Saudi Arabia in their World Cup opener and after playing Spain they face Ukraine in their final group match on June 23.
