French-born Wahbi Khazri scored the only goal of the game as Tunisia upset World Cup holders France 1-0 at the Education City Stadium, but the shock victory was not enough for them to join the defending champions in the last 16 of the tournament in Qatar.

Khazri steered home a 58th-minute winner amid a cluster of defenders for only a third victory at six World Cup tournaments for Tunisia but they were still eliminated.

Les Bleus thought they had equalised through Antoine Griezmann in the 98th minute but a much-delayed VAR review ruled it out for offside as the north Africans held on for an historic win. France now take on the runners-up in Group C, which will be concluded later on Wednesday.
