With a victory against France, who has already advanced to the Round of 16, Tunisia will have the opportunity to advance to the following round. France wants to advance to the knockout phase as the first side to have won all three games in the group stage, even though it will be a make-or-break game for Tunisia.
Now that eligibility has been secured, France coach Didier Deschamps may change his starting rotation in favor to rest players in front of a probable tough Round of 16 meeting with Argentina.
Jalel Kadri, Deschamps’ Tunisian competitor, is under a great deal of pressure to cause a significant upset in this match because he has stated that he will retire if his team does not move to the knockout phase.
Tunisia vs France Preview
The fact that its 26th-ranked FIFA nation from North Africa still hasn’t scored in this campaign is their main issue. They were able to contain Denmark, who is ranked No. 10 by FIFA, and compromise for a scoreless tie, but they fell to Australia in their most recent game.
Because although Tunisia is now last in the group, a victory in this game will progress them to the next stage. A great deal will rely on Australia vs. Denmark game because if Australia loses, it will be in Tunisia’s favor.
For their hopes of qualifying in the next world cup, the reigning champions will be relying on his squad to win 3 straight games. Despite France having a solid point differential (+4) and Australia potentially winning Pool D, the top slot is still technically obtainable. France will enter the game to continue its winning streak.
