Goalscorer Khazri disappointed about elimination despite France win
Wahbi Khazri scored as Tunisia took down giants France in a hearty performance but even that wasn’t enough to get them into last-16
Wahbi Khazri lamented about winning against world championsFrance
and yet going out of the World Cup all the same due to Australia getting the win against Denmark.
Khazri scored the solitary goal of the game which then earned him the man of the match award but the Socceroos were able to beat Denmark and secure 6 points, moving onto the knockout stage of the World Cup.
The Montpellier midfielder spoke to the reporters following the bittersweet win and said:
"It's a mixed feeling. We are happy to beat a team like France, we gave a very good performance and we leave with our heads held high but it's bittersweet as it would've been perfect to win and go through. Ultimately, it’s our fault as we didn’t do enough in the first two games."
"When I came off [in the 59th minute] I saw the score in the other game," he added. "We were hoping for a goal from Denmark but that’s what happens when you depend on others in football, and in life in general.
"I am sure theTunisia
fans are proud of us, it's a shame we cannot celebrate properly."
Tunisia boss Jalel Kadri was of the same mind as Khazri but he went on to address the rumors about his resignation as well, saying:
"I don't know why you insist that I resign. We have been able to continue our work and the contract I have in Tunisia is based on objectives. The objectives were not fulfilled but we still have to do the analysis, and it will be up to the Tunisian Federation to decide if I have achieved the targets or not.
"We beat the defending champions and did our best. It wasn't easy to collect four points. We played well for five and a half halves with only one – against Australia – not being good enough."
