With a solitary goal, Tunisia achieved a historic victory in the World Cup on Wednesday by defeating current world champions France 1-0.
The goal was scored by Wahbi Khazri (Montpellier striker who was born in France) in the 13th minute of the second half.
France, already classified as the leader of group D, had decided to leave a large part of their figures on the bench. Mbappé, Griezman and the goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris were not part of the starting eleven.
The game had been well managed by the Tunisians who had approached the goal defended by Steve Mandanda, goalkeeper of Stade Rennais FC
But it was not a victory far from suffering: in the eighth minute of the second half, the star Anthony Griezman scored an agonizing goal to tie the match, but it was invalidated due to the intervention of the VAR.
In the other group match, Australia beat Denmark 1-0 to qualify second in the group.
Now France will have to wait to find out which team is second in group C shared by Argentina, Mexico, Poland and Saudi Arabia.
For its part, Australia will face this Saturday with the first of group C.
In a curious fact, in the middle of the game a man invaded the field carrying a flag of the Palestinian Territories.
