Qatar 2022: Tunisia Upset France, Exit World Cup

37


French-born Wahbi Khazri scored the only goal of the game as Tunisia upset reigning World Cup champions, France 1-0 at the Education City Stadium on Wednesday, but the shock victory was not enough for them to join the defending champions in the last 16 of the tournament in the ongoing 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Khazri steered home a 58th-minute winner amid a cluster of defenders for only a third victory at six World Cup tournaments for Tunisia but they were still eliminated.

France, who made nine changes for the match from the team that beat Denmark and had already booked their place in the knockout stage, finished top of Group D on goal difference from runners-up Australia, who beat Denmark 1-0 at the same time.

France now take on the runners-up in Group C, which will be concluded later on Wednesday night.
