Tunisia Vs England (Live Updates): Eagles dare Three Lions

Africa has been poor as far as the Russia 2018 World Cup in Russia is concerned with no goal let alone victory for any of the teams representing the continent so far.

It is against this backdrop that Africa is looking on to the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia to change the story as they go on against the Three Lions of England in Group G’s second game.

England’s last win in a FIFA World Cup was the 1-0 victory against Slovenia almost eight years ago at South Africa 2010 but with the fresh air in the team they are expected to end that poor run.

On the other hand, Tunisia who are Africa’s highest ranked team by FIFA presently are no pushovers hence a tasty clash is expected at Volvogard.
