Panama vs Tunisia
2018 FIFA World Cup
Tunisia have finished off their 2018 FIFA World Cup appearance with a win, downing Panama 2-1 on Friday morning.
Panama and Tunisia are playing for pride when they meet in Saransk. Join The Roar for live scores from the match, starting from 4am AEST.
Panama shocked the world when they qualified for the World Cup but they have underwhelmed ever since.
They have already conceded nine goals in two games and their defence has proven to be almost non-existent at times.
Still, it’s been a historic tournament for Panama as it’s the first one they’ve qualified for.
The majority of their squad plays their football in the MLS, and it was the United States’ spot that they manage to grasp on the final day of qualifiers.
And their defeat to England, defender Felipe Baloy scored the nation’s first ever World cup goal.
Michael Murillo and Armando Cooper will miss the game for Panama due to suspension.
Tunisia have given a better account of themselves but still failed to reach their full potential.
They suffered early heartbreak in their first fixture against England were a last-minute goal saw them fail to get what would have been a very valuable draw.
They came out firing in the second game against Belgium, but were caught out time and time again.
Tunisia lost that game 5-2 but gave everyone a memorable game that will be remembered for years to come.
The African side are the heavy favourites but will go into the game without key players Syam Ben Youssef, Mouez Hassen and Dylan Bronn – who are all injured.
There’s not much to play for so expect both sides to go out swinging. Tunisia have much more punching power, so expect them to inflict most of the damage.
Panama 1 – 4 Tunisia
