2022 FIFA World Cup Tunisia vs France: Where To Watch, Live Streaming, Date, Timing, Squad, Lineups, Venue:

Tunisia are hoping to qualify for the knockouts at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as they face reigning champions France in their penultimate group game. The Africans, however, need to beat France in contention to go through to the knockouts, and further hope Australia falter against Denmark in their game. Tunisia sit last in this Group D on one point, so do Denmark who are just a place above the Tunisians with same number of points.

However, Tunisia boast a superior goal difference among the remaining three teams in this group, having conceded only one goal across two games so far. But there’s more to this picture, as Tunisia are the only ones, alongside Mexico and Uruguay who are yet to score a goal at this 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Eagles of Carthage will have to change that narrative against France here, as only a win would keep their hopes alive of joining France into the Round of 16 from this group.

On the other hand, France have broken the curse of defending champions bowing out from the group stage itself during their title defending tournament, by becoming the first reigning champions since Brazil [2006] to qualify for the knockouts. With one curse broken now, Didier Deschamps’ side is now looking to make history, by joining Italy and Brazil as the only teams to successfully defend their world title.

France have booked their berth in the knockouts after thumping wins in their first two games against Australia and Denmark. While they await on who they face from Group C in their last-16 tie, France have a chance to come out from the group with a 100% record. A win here against Tunisia will make them the first team at this year’s edition to achieve three wins from three group games. However, that might not be the very first agenda on Deschamps’ mind, as the manager will eye some heavy rotations against a low-key Tunisia, having already secured their knockout ticket.
