Tunisia in the 2006 World Cup

Fédération Tunisienne de Football
Group H

Tunisia vs Saudi Arabia in München:
From a drab, dismal, damp squib of a start by two World Cup lightweights we actually had football drama of heavyweight quality at the end.

Spain vs Tunisia in Stuttgart:
Tunisia held on to Jaouhar Mnari's 8th minute goal for most of the game but Spain's striking quality came good towards the end.

Ukraine vs Tunisia in Berlin:
Tunisia started the game with more enthusiasm, knowing that a win would make them the second African team in the Second Round, but they were reduced to ten men just before half-time and dos Santos was saved until too late.

Knockout Stage

Tunisia failed to qualify for the Second Round.
