The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia lost 1-0 to the Socceroos of Australia on Saturday in their second Group D game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and their chances of advancing from the group now hang perilously in the balance.

Mitchell Duke scored with a glancing header for Australia in the 23rd minute and this proved to be the match-winner.

The Tunisians asserted their dominance in the first 15 minutes of the second half as they had Lion’s share of the possession.

Ferjani Sassi of Tunisia blazed a shot high over and wide in the 61st minute from just outside the box and Australia’s Matthew Leckie missed a glorious chance to tap in 10 minutes later after a defence-splitting pass by James McLaren.

Tunisia had several chances to score in the closing stages of the game with substitute Wahbi Khazri in particular having a shot that tested the Australian goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne in the 87th minute.

Tunisia play France in their third Group D game on Wednesday, November 30 at the Education City Stadium.

The Carthage Eagles have one point after two games played at the 2022 World Cup and Australia have three points.
