Xtra Time Web Desk: Tunisia beat reigning World Champions France 1-0 in a FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D fixture at Education City Stadium on Wednesday but it wasn’t enough to take them through to the next stages. Wahbi Khazri scored the decisive goal in the 58th minute with a fantastic solo run. France despite the loss will make it to the Round of 16 along with Australia who defeated Denmark in another Group D fixture.
France had a goal disallowed towards the end as VAR review saw Antoine Griezmann off-side. Didier Deschamps made nine changes to his side as he rested Kylian Mbappe. The Paris Saint Germain star was only brought towards the later stages.
With Australia beating Denmark to finish on six points, it meant Tunisia, who finished third, crashed out in strange fashion having taken four points off France and Denmark.
France are set to play the runners-up in Group C on Sunday with a potential meeting with England in the quarter-finals if they win their last-16 game.
