90min: Some great goalkeeping from Agassa there as he comes out to stop Ben Youssef from getting a shot in.
89MIN: That was close! A Tunisia corner kick is fired into the box and Agassa comes out from his line to punch away but he misses it completely. Luckily for him, so do the Tunisian players.

54min: Adebayor is penalised once again in the penalty area after he slips offside when a free kick is taken. The Spurs forward hasn’t been his influential self as yet.
53min: It seems as though Togo’s game plan are to sit and play out the draw as they are already through, and wait for the chance to break. It’s a risky move thou

51min: BOOKING! Khazri gets a caution for arguing Tunisia’s case to the referee.
49min: A penalty shout from Tunisia as Daragi is caught in the box by Boussou. The Tunisian gets just ahead of his opponent and Boussou catches the midfielder from behind. It should have been a penalty!

10min: Tunisia are able to breathe again and they try to launch an attack from the back.
9min: CHANCE! Gakpe drives down the right and pulls away from his defender to get a decent cross into the box. The ball bounces around in the area and falls to Adebayor, who tries to swerve the ball into the back of the net with a low ball but it drifts out wide.
8min: Chammam brings down Ayite with a late challenge and gets penalised for it. Togo are always pressing when Tunisia have the ball.
