We've got a match between Tunisia and France on our hands which will kick off this coming Wednesday. The final game of the World Cup group stages will take place at Education City Stadium.

Following two rounds of matches in the group stage, Tunisia sit as number four with one point, while France collected six points as number one. Tunisia arrive at this match placed as number 30 in the FIFA world ranking, while France lack behind as number four in the world.

Tunisia could perhaps, and it is a big perhaps, squeeze their way into second place if all the stars align. The most likely scenario though will be for them to head home after the first three matches.

France are ready for the next stage and are able to take it a little easy in this third match. Just like four years ago when they claimed first place by drawing Denmark in the final group encounter.
