Tunisia have become the first African country to be eliminated from the 2022 World Cup.
They exit the tournament despite a 1-0 win over reigning champions France.
There were sensational scenes at the death, with Antoine Griezmann offside in the build-up to his equaliser!
Tunisia take the famous win late on, but it won’t mean much, sadly, with Australia having beaten Denmark 1-0.
Senegal becomes first African country to qualify for knockout rounds
Senegal became the first African team to reach the knockout rounds at the 2022 World Cup.
Kalidou Koulibaly scored the winner as the Teranga Lions beat Ecuador 2-1 on Tuesday.
Senegal will now play the winners of Group B – the group which England currently top – on Sunday night.
The Chelsea defender’s superb volleyed winner came only two minutes after Moises Caicedo had pulled Ecuador level from a corner, a result which would have taken the South Americans through in their place.
The African side fully deserved to qualify from their World Cup group for the first time in 20 years. Largely in part to a first-half performance where they blew away Ecuador, who came into the match knowing they only needed a point to progress.
It took until the final minute of the opening period for Senegal’s dominance to count. Ismaila Sarr was fouled in the area before confidently beating Hernan Galindez from 12 yards.
Though Caicedo briefly gave Ecuador hope midway through the second period it was a brief respite with Senegal still the more dangerous side even after Koulibaly’s goal. And Edouard Mendy’s goal was relatively untroubled as they jumped into second to set up a last-16 tie with the winners of Group B.
