PEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! ENGLAND HAVE SNEAKED IN THROUGH THE BACK DOOR. The Tunisians rest with their long faces and they'd feel hard done by that. Late late heartbreak for yet another African team. But England truly deserved the win and they looked fresh throughout the length of the 90 minutes.

Tunisia 1-2 England at Full Time.

That's that from the yap centre. Hope y'all had a ball. I did. 

Amit Mishra is back in the room with "It's coming home, lads."

Ciao.
93' Badri finds some space on the left wing near the corner flag but Hendo barges in and shepherds the ball out for a goalkick. What a performance this has been from the England captain.
92' Substitution for England.

Jesse Lingard off. Eric Dier on. 
90' Trippier swings it in. Maguire flicks it on and Harry Kane steers it in! OH YEAAAAAAAH! HURRICANE STRIKES, of course HE DOES. What a deflating moment for the Tunisians but what a wonderful moment for these English youngsters who really did work their rears off tonight.
90' Corner for England as Loftus Cheek pressures Maaloul into conceding a corner. Could this be it?
88' Loftus Cheek has been turning it on ever since he came on and he once again swivels into space but he gets a bit overexcited and runs the ball past the byline and out for a goalkick.
87' Walker plays a delightful through ball for Trippier on the right flank and the Spurs wing back cuts it back and Rashford lets it run for Lingard but the ball is intercepted before Lingard could put his boot through it. Another 'almost' attack from England.
86' His freekick does not carry enough weight and the defenders see it clear. 
85' England have a freekick on the right flank and Trippier will take it.
84' Substitution for Tunisia.

Khazri off. Khalifa on.
83' Young feeds Rashford on the left flank and the Manchested United youngster almost swivels past Bronn and into the box but somehow the Tunisians put a foot in there and cons ede a corner. Young lifts the ball into the box and Mustapha comes out and punches it clear but Stones catches him and Tunisia have a freekick. Mustapha is in pain. It's not a healthy day for Tunisian goalkeepers. I'll say that much.
81' Young plays it in but Tunisia see it clear and they win a throw-in after dispossessing Loftus-Cheek.
80' England have a freekick near the left flank, 40 odd yards away and Ashley Young will serve it into the box.
79' Substitution for England.

Dele Alli off. Loftus-Cheek on.
78' Ashley Young puts it over the crossbar and beyond the advertisement hoardings. Sigh.
77' England have a freekick right outside the box as Dele Allis brought down by Bronn. Lingard was also knocked over but the referee blows his whistle for the infringement involving Alli. 20 yards out. Looks like Ashley Young will take it.
76' Trippier makes a telling turn and lays the ball off to Rashford who has the beating of Maaloul more than once but he has to play it back to edge of the area for Hendo. Hendo then crosses it beyond the far post and Kane tries to cut it back but the Tunisians play it clear.
74' Walker plays a speculative ball into the box and it meets absolutely nobody and Tunisia have a goalkick.
72' Substitution for Tunisia.

Sliti off. Ben Amor on.
71' Ben Youssef yet again plays a slick through ball from the back and releases Khazri into the box but the latter's shot is blocked. Sliti gets hold of the ball but his shot from 20 yards out ends up going way wide off the mark.
70' Exciting football from England yet again. Young turns around on the edge of the box and feeds Hendo who lobs it into the box for Dele Alli but the Spurs star is flagged offside.
69' Marcus Rashford drops a shoulder before motoring ahead and playing Kane through the centre but the ball is stolen from his feet right before he could make it count.
68' Trippieeeer! No! Trippier gets it over the wall, gets it to dip but the ball ends up one feet away from the near post and goes out for a goalkick.
68' Substitution for England.

Sterling off. An exciting Marcus Rashford walks in for his World Cup debut.
67' England take a freekick on the left flank short and Harry Kane has his ankle tapped and wins a freekick for England, 25 yards out.
65' Lingard keeps the ball and does a fll semi near the centre of the park before sending it across to Maguire who gallops into the final third, looking ominous. He decides to send it across to Henderson on the right side. Hendo whips in a ball to the far post but it goes past everybody and rolls out of relevance for a goalkick.
63' Kane fights to hold on to the ball and then releases Sterling but he couldn't get the right amount of weight and the Man City man has to go further away from the box on the left side to gather it. He lays it off with a backheel for Young who gets there second after Meriah and concedes a freekick for fouling the Tunisian defender.
62' Hendo plays yet another long diagonal into the final third and though Lingard chases it down, he can't keep it in play as his touch takes the ball out for a goalkick.
60' Trippier takes the corner and Stones rises and heads it but his shot is off target but Kane dives in to keep it alive but England are forced to back. They foray into attack once again but this time, Raheem Sterling is penalized for pulling Bronn's shorts. Now, that's something I never thought I'd say.
59' England spending some quality time in possession in the final third and  you could sense something huge is looming. Trippier gets a delivered a peach, once again by Henderson. He tries to whip it in but Meriah gets back and deflects it out for a corner.
58' Lingard slaloms past Bronn and gives it off to Kane on the edge of the area but Sassi gets back and robs Kane and sends him sinking to his knees.
57' Some of these Tunisians possess some excellent close control and has already made me go "Woof" like an excited terrier half a dozen times already.
56' Kane holds the ball up and plays in Sterling on the right flank but his cross is dealt with and Tunisia get back on the ball.
54' Kane has the ball on the left flank but Badri tracks back steals the ball away from Kane but Maguire wins it back and ventures into the space near the corner flag and drives a ball into the box but the Tunisians clear the ball out of the danger zone.
52' Dele Alli spreads the play out to the left flank and Ashley Young crosses it in with his left but S. Ben Youssef sends the ball clear and another England attack bites the dust.
52' Ben Youssef hoists the ball forward into the final third and Khazri has the beating of Maguire and even gets to the ball before Pickford can sweep it clear. However, the forward is flagged off side. Poor decision from the assistant ref.
51' Trippier floats the ball into the box and Maguire heads it straight at Mustapha. Meanwhile, Kane was brought down once again, very similar to how he was mowed to the ground in the first half and still no VAR, no penalty.
49' Malooul, Shkhiri and Badri form a triangle down the left flank and thanks to Shkhri's spectacular close control, they ease out of a cul-de-sac but England win the ball back before it can account for something. Sterling pounces upon it and sends a couple of Tunisian players for dinner but he can't bring it to anything. England end up with a corner.
47' Trippier gets tripped and England have yet another freekick. They take it short and eventually lose the ball on the left flank.
46' Tunisia are enjoying some time on the ball as they work their forward from the back but Henderson steals the ball from Sassi and the Tunisian goalkeeper lunges in from behind and affords England a freekick near the centre of the park.
