Tunisia vs Australia, FIFA World Cup 2022: Tunisia vs Australia - Australia Defeated Tunisia 1-0  On Saturday, Australia defeated Tunisia 1-0 in the Al Janoub Stadium in their first World Cup victory in 12 years. They have moved to second place in Group D, trailing incumbent champions France. Mitchell Duke gave Australia the lead midway through the first half with a glancing header past keeper Aymen Dahmen, while Tunisia's best chance came when captain Youssef Msakni shot just wide. The victory ended Australia's seven-match winless streak at World Cups since picking up three points against Serbia in 2010. The team, which had lost 4-1 to France in its first game, fought hard against Tunisia before Mitchell Duke scored its sole goal to put Australia in control. Duke scored with a header in the 23rd minute of the game after a feed from Craig Goodwin was deflected from one of the Australian defenders. Notably, Tunisia drew 0-0 with Denmark in their opening game of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
