Australia will be looking to get their first points on board when they continue their 2022 World Cup Group D campaign against Tunisia at the Al Janoub Stadium on Saturday. The Socceroos suffered a disappointing 4-1 defeat against the reigning champions France in their first match on Tuesday, while Tunisia played out a goalless draw against Denmark on the same day. Both nations are competing in the finals of the World Cup for the sixth time, while Australia have made the knockout stages in 2016 before losing to eventual champions Italy, the North American outfit are looking to reach the last-16 for the first time in their history. 

The Carthage Eagles failed to win a group game during the 1998, 2002 and 2006 editions but managed to put a victory on the board last time out in Russia. Meanwhile,this time around, Tunisia have made a positive start to the tournament, having earned a hard-fought draw against Euro 2020 semifinalists Denmark. The Africans gave a good account of themselves against the talented Danish Dynamite side and matched them toe-to-toe. Meanwhile Tunisia have faced Australia  three times in their history, with the only competitive match coming in the 2005 Confederations Cup, while the Africans won 2-0.

Australia, meanwhile, will enter this contest desperate to secure a win to have any realistic chance of going through to the Round of 16. The Socceroos lost to France despite taking an early lead through Craig Dawson. France went on to score four times without reply through Adrien Rabiot, Olivier Giroud (two) and Kylian Mbappe, with the result leaving the AFC outfit at the bottom of the group. Australia have now been present in each of the last five World Cups, being eliminated in the group stage in their last three participations, winning just once in the process.

Probable Lineups

Tunisia have not reported any injury concerns from their previous match against denmark, so the head coach is unlikely to make too many alterations to the playing eleven that started against the Danish Dynamite. Wahbi Khazri, who is the leading goalscorer in the squad with 24 scalps to his name, is likely to be involved against the Socceroos. Issam Jalebi is expected to spearhead the attack, with Anis Slimane and Youssef Msakni in support. As for Australia, Mitchell Duke could pearhead the attack, with Mathew Leckie occupying the right channel and last game’s goal-scorer Goodwin on the left. 

Tunisia probable starting lineup: Dahmen, Bronn, Meriah, Talbi, Drager, Skhiri, Laidouni, Abdi, Khazri, Jebali, Mesakni

Australia probable starting lineup: Ryan, Atkinson, Souttar, Rowles, Behich, Mooy, Leckie, Irvine, McGree, Goodwin, Duke
