Iraq-Tunisia: analysis of the match
Tunisia, fourth in the last CAN U20, would have hoped for a better start to the tournament. By falling against England (1-0, goal by Dane Scarlett), the Aiglons got into trouble for the rest of the competition. Victory against Iraq for this second group match then becomes almost imperative if they want to reach the round of 16. Which would be a (very) good performance for a selection that had not taken part in the World Cup in the category since 1985. For their third match of the group stages, which will take place next Sunday, the Tunisians will challenge Uruguay.
For its part, the Iraqi selection, vice-champion of Asia in title, was humiliated against Uruguay (4-0) for their entry into the running. A real thrashing that inevitably affects the morale of Emad Mohammed’s troops. But watch out for the wounded beast! The young Iraqis will give everything not to relive such a disappointment and better, glean the three points of victory to relaunch completely in the tournament. Their final group match will take place on Sunday againstEngland.
