The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia bowed out of Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup on a high after defeating the Le Blues of France 1-0 to garner four points in the last match of group D.
The Tunisians drew 0-0 with Denmark in its opening game but lost 0-1 to Australia who eventually finished second in the group.
Griezmann thought he had maintained France’s eight-year unbeaten World Cup run right at the death, yet VAR replays showed he was in an offside position and the equalizer was ruled out.
Wahbi Khazri was the hero for Jalel Kadri’s side here, turning home what proved the only goal of the game just before the hour mark.
Nevertheless, in the end Khazri’s strike meant very little for Tunisia, as Australia kept hold of second place in Group D by edging a 1-0 victory of their own over Denmark.
Australia and France both finished with six points but France top group D on goal difference.
Both nations will wait to know their fate as they look forward to playing opponents in group C which comprises of Poland, Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
