Qatar 2022: Australia Defeat Tunisia To Keep World Cup Dream Alive

 

Australia beat Tunisia 1-0 at the Al Janoub Stadium on Saturday to register their first World Cup victory in 12 years as they provisionally moved up to second position in Group D behind the reigning champions, France, to keep their dreams alive.

Striker Mitchell Duke scored midway through the first half with a glancing header past keeper, Aymen Dahmen, to give Australia the lead, while Tunisia’s best chance came when skipper, Youssef Msakni, shot just wide.

Tunisia brought on the squad’s top scorer, Wahbi Khazri, in the second half as they upped the tempo in search of an equaliser, but the Australian defence stood firm with goalkeeper and skipper, Mat Ryan, a calming presence at the back.

The victory snapped Australia’s seven-match winless run at World Cups since they last picked up three points in a victory over Serbia in 2010.

France play Denmark in the other Group D encounter later this Saturday, November 26, 2022.
