World Cup: Tunisia Loses 2:1 to England

England edged past Tunisia with a 2:1 score line. The match which was looking like it was going to be Africa’s first result at the on-going World Cup ended up in another loss for an African team.

Harry Kane had opened score for the English in the 11th minute, pouncing on a parry by the goalkeeper to tap in the first goal. Tunisia responded through Ferjani Sassi in the 35th minute via a penalty. This was the first goal by any African team so far at the on-going World Cup.

Though Tunisa held on to the end of regulation time, a defensive error in the 90th minute resulted in a corner which was headed in by Harry Kane off a Maguire header.

At the end of the match, Nabil Maaloul, the Tunisian coach had this to say “We were playing against a highly-skilled and highly co-ordinated team in terms of their forward players. If we were to get a draw it would have been an excellent result for us. But hopefully this will lead to higher levels of concentration in the coming games.”

Tunisia will now take on Belgium on the 23rd while England will take on Panama the next day.
