FIFA U-20 World Cup: Tunisia qualify for Round of 16 despite defeat, Gambia draw to win group

Neither Tunisia or The Gambia could find a goal in their final group stage matches on Sunday at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup but both teams advanced to the Round of 16 in Argentina. Tunisia held off numerous attacks from Group E opponents Uruguay but a penalty kick in second half stoppage time from Franco Gonzalez ended the match with a 1-0 defeat for the North African nation. However, Tunisia narrowly sneaks into the knockout stage for the first time as one of the best third placed teams and will play Brazil on May 31.
