Cape Town — Tunisia is up, carrying the hopes of Africa on their shoulders. Let’s not talk about that EU membership application right now, okay?
Anyway, two minutes into the game and Tunisia are forced to defend vigorously with a shot to goal from the British players.
England’s Dele Alli at the centre of the action the first, and then the second attempt minutes later.
So much action that the Carthage Eagles goalkeeper is seen receiving some attention for his arm after a long slide clearing the goal, and holds his arm in pain.
Substitute goalkeeper Farouk Ben Mustapha is now warming up to take over.
Harry Kane – captain – scores for England after 11 minutes – feels like finally after three attempts in the early part of the match.
It’s rather unkind of the commentator to say that everything that could go wrong for the Tunisians has already… I mean they haven’t scored an own goal!
Ben Mustapha replaces a weeping Mouez Hassen after 17min and is immediately put to work.
England goes on a series of attacks.
Two clear attacks and two corners from Tunisia in the space of a few minutes – cleared with no problem though. Nice work from the fresh goalie.
Kyle Walker pulls Fakhereddine Ben Youssef down.
Penalty! Ooh Tunisia, better not mess it up. I don’t care if Messi did.
First African goal of World Cup 2018! Youssef beats England’s Jordan Pickford.
More after half-time…
