I think Tunisia goalkeeper didn't touch the ball for the whole game.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

So Japan can’t beat Tunisia at home yet some people here think they can beat Germany and Spain in Qatar. Hahahaha.

6 ( +11 / -5 )

Hats off to the Eagles of Carthage. They soared over Osaka last night to claim the trophy over an experimental Samurai-Blue outfit. Tunisia will be a team to look out for as having a chance to go deep in Qatar, playing in conditions they love.

Moriyasu-Japan have plenty more games to tune up before Germany on November 24, and their strike force will need it.

The incredible thing is there are bald eagles in Tunisia.

Japan played reasonably well amd had a few chances / missed opportunities but never really threatened on goal.

Tunisia played very well. Skilled players that took it to Japan and were good all over the field. Great game to watch.

Look forward to seeing how they do at the WC.

Agree it was a good game, especially for Tunisia - they showed good tactics, discipline and can be a tough nut for any of the big teams at the WC.

What we saw though was Japan from the past! A lot of possession and passes, many of which returning the ball and lack of ideas and surprises upfront. Not even a single middle shoot and all the penalty area small game cut skillfully by the defenders. Well - just hope it's a good lesson and they can learn and the coach picks up the right players!

Got thrashed by Tunisia at home lol. The country will soon have Tunisia amnesia though, and think they can win the Cup. I love how this usually plays out every four years. I get to laugh hard while most of the whole country is crying. Can't wait!

All if you commenters should be concerned about England losing 4-0 to Hungary. LOL. Embarrassing for the creators of the sport. Cannot win anything since that joke of a final in 1966 from an offside goal.

Tunisia both attacking and defending outclassed the boys in blue. Rock solid.

Irrelevant comment but yeah Southgate needs the boot!!

North African Nations play a rich brand of football. On their day Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Egypt can tame the very best from across the footballing world. Well played Tunisia.

I think you are confusing “ball wasn’t over the line” with “offside”.

See you in Qatar! Oh wait, you can’t go can you. Shame.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Tunisia played a great game, no shame losing to them.

Poor England though LOL

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

Ah, a Scot possibly

Enjoy your titanic struggles with San Marino.
