69′ POOR EFFORT! A bit of pinball in the box, it falls to Billiat who hooks his effort from 30 yards over. He indicates there was a bobble as he went to strike the ball.
65′ GOOD SAVE! Khenissi is put through on goal, it is parried by the keeper and the striker’s header from the rebound strikes the post! What a let off that was.

Looking ahead of today’s match now dubbed ZIMBABWE vs TUNISIA, there is no clear winner until final whistle.
It will be tough for Warriors but it won’t be a stroll in the park for the Tunisians either.
