0 23

Tunisia defeated France but the holders still finished on top of Group D. Tunisia went out as the third placed team but not without registering a 1-0 win over France.

Antoine Griezmann seemed to have scored the equaliser for France late into the game but war intervened and found that the Athletico Madrid man was offside.

Wahbi Khazri scored for the Tunisians in the 58th minute to give the lead but it was not enough to get them into round of 16. Tunisia were fantastic from start to finish and thoroughly deserved the points.

France made nine changes for this match. Australia beat Denmark 1-0 in other group D game and finished second on goal difference.

Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Greizmann have been introduced by the coach to change happen the scenario but nothing auspicious happened for France and Tunisia go out of the tournament with their heads held high as they clinched a famous win against the reigning World Champions.
