Reactions to Tunisia after loss to Australia
African football fans were delighted after Senegal defeated Qatar 3-1 to record the continent's first victory in Qatar.
There was optimism that Tunisia would build on an impressive showing against Denmark when they take on Australia.
However, there was a timid approach from the Carthage Eagles for a large portion of the game only to put pressure on Australia late.
Following the defeat, the reactions towards Tunisia were negative as the result leaves them in a bad position in the group.
Nothing but a resounding victory against the defending champions France in their last group game will be enough to qualify for the round of 16.
