Baloy prevents shutout against England
England dominated Panama for the first 62 minutes as it went up 6-0 with goals at seemingly a blink of an eye. But Panama did manage to not be shut out as Felipe Baloy scored in the 78th minute to make it a 6-1 game. Panama held 43 percent of the possession, with it resulting in eight shots (two on goal). Panama was called for 13 fouls including three yellow cards.
Tunisia unable to keep up with Belgium
A 5-2 loss to Belgium on Saturday eliminated Tunisia from chances of advancing in the World Cup, making today's contest meaningless aside from the focus on not finishing on bottom of Group G. A goal by Dylan Brown in the 18th minute cut the Tunisia deficit to 2-1, while it eventually dropped behind 5-1 in the 90th minute. Tunisia added a second goal by Wahbi Khazri in extra time. Tunisia fired 15 shots (five on goal), while allowing 23 shots including 12 on goal.
Aside from the who cares aspect of this game, it might actually be entertaining with neither of these squads particularly good defensively and a shootout would at least keep the fans happy. Look for both teams to play a fairly wide open style, but with Tunisia being overall the better side I'm going with the favorites here..
