Panama vs Tunisia Preview

Panama vs Tunisia

Competition – FIFA World Cup

Stadium – Mordovia Arena

Date: 28th June 2018

Kick-off time – 19:00 GMT

This game offers little to play for as both of these teams have already been relegated after the first two games.

Panama are debutants at this stage and not much was expected from them when they were drawn in this group.

They started their campaign on a bright note when they held Belgium to a draw in the first half of their first game, but they capitulated in the second half and lost 3-0 eventually.

While we expected them to get better in their second match, they didn’t get the chance to.

They were 5-0 down at half time against England and eventually lost that game 6-1.

Scoring their first World Cup goal would have boosted their confidence and it will be interesting to see how they perform in this game.

Tunisia qualified for this World Cup unbeaten, and when they held Spain for almost the duration of their last World Cup warm up game we thought they would be formidable oppositions to England and Belgium.

However, they started their campaign with a 2-1 loss to England before being thrashed 5-2 by Belgium.

They head into this game with just their pride at stake and they will not want to be first team to be unable to beat Panama at a World Cup in this game.

Bookmakers make Tunisia slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in this match.
