The stretcher was required but Khazri was able to watch the game from the bench.

The initial prognosis is not yet known but it would a major blow to Tunisia's chances if their star play maker cannot take part in the opening stages of the tournament.

Khazri has been linked with a January exit from Sunderland and appears to have fallen out of favour with David Moyes.
