Tunisia head into an encounter against Australia on Saturday. Played out at Al Janoub Stadium, this is their second of three outings in the group stage at the World Cup.

Tunisia rank number two on one point after their opening match in Group D, while Australia have zero points as number four. The Socceroos head to their next match as number 38 in the FIFA world ranking. Meanwhile, Tunisia are looking ahead to the game as number 30 in the standings.

While considered outsiders for a group win, Tunisia are looking to cause a slight surprise and push their way into second place. Australia arrive at the World Cup with mischief on their mind, but seeing them get beyond the group would indeed raise some eyebrows.
