A solitary goal from Mitch Duke gives the Socceroos their first victory in Qatar and leaves Tunisia on the canvas


The Australian team, with a header from Mitch Duke, beat Tunisia this Saturday (0-1) in the second day of Group D of the World Cup in Qatar, a result that allows the 'Socceroos' to stay alive in the tournament and that forces the Africans to surprise France on the last day to dream of the eighth.

The goal for the Oceanic team after 23 minutes surprised Kalel Kadri's men, who were slow to respond to the blow and were unable to neutralize it in an intense final stretch. Now, the 'Águilas de Carthago', bottom of the group, are holding on to give the bell to Didier Deschamps' men.

The goal initially upset the 'Águilas de Carthago', who even so reacted in the last minutes of the first half and were able to equalize the contest on two occasions by Dräger and Msakni who did not find a goal.

After the restart, Kalel Kadri's men continued to try and even called for a penalty in a jumbled play inside the area in the first minutes that went unnoticed by the referee, before Mathew Ryan had to put out a providential hand to avoid greater danger from a cross from Msakni.
