Tunisia vs. France Highlights

Tunisia 1, France 0

Setting the stage

Tunisia was aiming to bounce back after failing to score in its last two group stage outings. On the other side, France was aiming to capitalize on the momentum built after back-to-back wins to start the tournament.

9′: No goal

Tunisia’s Nader Ghandri appeared to knock in the first score of the game, but the goal was ruled offside after a VAR check.

35′: Nimble shot denied

Tunisia forward Wahbi Khazri got off a shot in-between a pair of France players, but goalkeeper Steve Mandanda swallowed the shot attempt.

There was no score at halftime.

53′: A little high

Tunisia had a handful of scoring opportunities but failed to capitalize. Its latest one came early in the second half, when midfielder Aissa Laidouni‘s close-up shot was hit north of the net.

58′: GOAL!

Tunisia drew first blood when Khazri trickled in a goal past Mandanda, and the crowd erupted thereafter.
