In the World Cup Qatar 2022, Tunisia and Australia are completing their fifth World Cup participation. A championship to which they arrived with the illusion of making history. From the side of the Africans to qualify for the round of 16 for the first time, while on the other side the ‘Socceroos’ yearn to match at least their best participation in a World Cup tournament, achieved in the 2006 edition, when they settled among the 16 best teams of the tournament.

Both teams opened Saturday with a highly contested game from start to finish. The victory corresponded to the cast of Oceania, which added its first victory in Qatar 2022. The only score of the match was scored by Mitchell Duke at 23 minutes. Following a burst from Craig Goodwin, the Fagiano Okayama forward hit a header well out of Dahmen’s reach.

Tunisia had 45 minutes to match the actions. They tried all the ways but they couldn’t beat the goal of Mathew Ryan, who established himself as one of the team’s figures. The white team was in debt. The draw against Denmark had generated a lot of excitement in the Tunisian fans, but this defeat leaves them very difficult in the standings. They will depend on beating France and waiting for other results to access the next stage.

It took ten years for Australia to once again add three points in a World Cup. The last time they achieved it was in South Africa 2010. On that occasion they beat Serbia 2-1, a match corresponding to the last day of Group D. Although that victory was not enough for them to reach the round of 16. Today in Qatar if they hope to have a happy ending.

The author of the winning goal was Mitchell Duke. With an accurate header, the 31-year-old striker put his country very close to reaching the round of 16. Somewhat historic that was celebrated by the 25 million inhabitants, as happened on June 13, when they qualified against Peru in the playoffs.

For the duel against the Blanquirroja, Duke also started the game. He was only present on the field for 69 minutes, which is why he witnessed the agonizing definition by penalties outside the field of play. One of the most tense moments that he experienced throughout his career, a fact that was recorded after the meeting.

“I was going to have a damn, sorry. . . a panic attack. Honestly, he had never been involved in this kind of situation before. We have gone the hard way. A lot of people wrote us off. All credit to everyone involved, I’m very proud of the guys.” he said before the television cameras.

It is the third meeting in which both teams have met, the first in a World Cup.
