In the nine matches that Tunisia have played at the World Cup, they have secured just one win.



That win was unique though as it was the first ever for an African nation in World Cup. So Tunisia have a bit of history about them!

They reach Germany after a brilliant run in their qualifying campaign, winning six matches, drawing three and losing only one.

If they continue their form, they can beat Saudi Arabia in Group H. And then with a bit of luck against Spain and Ukraine, Tunisia can advance to the round of 16.
