France lost 1-0 to Tunisia but still won their World Cup group

26

AL RAYAN, Qatar (AP) — Defending champion France won its World Cup group despite losing 1-0 to Tunisia on Wednesday.

Wahbi Khazri scored in the 58th minute to give the Tunisians victory, but it was not enough to advance to the round of 16. Australia beat Denmark 1-0 in the other Group D game to finish second on goal difference.

Khazri ran through the center of the French defense and beat two players before slotting the ball into the bottom corner. It was Tunisia’s third World Cup victory.

France forward Antoine Griezmann thought he had equalized in the eighth minute of stoppage time, but was ruled offside after watching video.
