The sheer amount of passing around the box without a shot and then dumping it to the side to drive it in the corner reminded me of the Iceland game. Tunisia was quite obviously defending with everyone in the back and hitting back on counters. Cycling the ball in the midfield against that tactic (especially after they drew 1-1) was just useless padding of possession statistics. They were never going to come out and challenge at midfield.England v Tunisia was like an old Roy of the Rovers story. Harry Kane could be Roy, though England would be better if it was not a multicultural side.
Tunisia were typical of the worst type of foreigners.
“When playing foreign teams, particularly in the European club competitions, the opposition would often cynically employ overt gamesmanship or downright dirty tactics. Continental sides were considered to be "sneaky"
If they went ahead, they didn't try to extend their lead, like proper footballers, but defended, like blackguards and cowards. It was, Roy always believed, something of a character defect, probably caused by the pencil-thin moustaches they wore, in order to distinguish themselves as foreign.”
The authorities were right to discourage English clubs from European competition in the 1950s.
Johnny Foreigner ruins the game
Once that Tunisian player went down and got a penalty I saw all sorts of English players protesting and slipping here and there to no avail. That ref was never going to call anything for England so stop trying.
