MOSCOW, June 19, 2018 (News Wires) - Tunisia goalkeeper Moez Hassen has been ruled out of the World Cup after dislocating his left shoulder in the team's 2-1 loss to England Monday night.

The team posted the injury update on Twitter on Tuesday, saying Hassen was the "victim of a dislocation" and the injury was "very bad news for Tunisia."

Hassen collided with England's Jesse Lingard in the 5th minute in the match at Volgograd. But he remained on the field and even pulled off a fine save - clawing away John Stones' header from Ashley Young's corner - before Harry Kane scored the opening goal for England.

Hassen was forced off in the 15th and replaced by Ben Mustapha.

The Tunisia squad has returned to its World Cup training base in Moscow to prepare for Saturday's Group G game against Belgium.
