Antoine Greizmann, however, found the back of the net in added time but drama ensued when the referee called for a VAR check and ruled out the goal to send the Tunisian fans in jubilant mood despite knowing they were out of the competition.

Tunisia finished the group in third position with four points behind Australia and Group winners France who finished with six points apiece.
