Australia 1-0 Tunisia: Australians stay alive in the World Cup

Despite losing 4-1 to the defending champions France in their opening encounter, the outcome against Tunisia means that Australia still has a chance to advance to the round of 16.

Group D’s top two teams, France and Australia, each have three points, while Tunisia and Denmark each have one. Later, France played against Denmark. Tunisia will play France in the final round of group games on Wednesday, and Australia will play Denmark.

Australia took the lead thanks to a play out of the back from their goalie after a rough start from both teams. Duke quickly touched down to send Craig Goodwin down the left flank after receiving the goalkeeper’s pass near midfield. Duke then ran forward to nod Goodwin’s deflected cross into the far corner.

This time, there were less mistakes and more timely interventions. None was more significant than the center back Harry Souttar’s last-ditch sliding clearance to stop Mohamed Dräger’s threatening shot just before halftime.

In its sixth World Cup appearance, Tunisia is still vying to become the first nation to move from the group stage, but it must first defeat France.

An enormous Palestinian banner with the words “Free Palestine” written on it was raised by Tunisia supporters during the second half.
