Tunisia Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

Tunisia are placed in very hard Group with two big favourites to go through Belgium and England. They will try to pick up some points against two teams, but it will be a truly hard job. They play strong football in defending and they will try to finish these two games without conceding. If they succeed to collect some points against Belgium and England, then they must win in Round 3 against Panama. However Tunisia don't have many chances to reach Round of 16, but they will do their best on World Cup 2018.
