World Cup: Australia edge Tunisia 1-0

0 98

Australia pipped Tunisia 1-0 in their second Group D game at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar, on Saturday.

Mitchell Duke’s first-half header was the difference the two heavyweights locked horns in a make or mar battle at the Al Janoub Stadium. A poor first-half performance cost the North Africans greatly. Australia was the better side in the first 45 minutes and were duly rewarded with their third-ever victory in World Cup history.

Australia came into the game from an opener defeat to France, while Tunisia came in from a hard-fought draw against favorites, Denmark.

Tunisia must beat defending champions, France in their last group match to progress to the knockout stages.
