Tunisia Player Silences Eduardo Camvinga

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Eduardo Camavinga made his debut at the World Cup for France in their final Group D clash against Tunisia on Wednesday afternoon.

Les Bleus have already qualified for the knockout stage after registering two victories from their first two group games.

This has allowed coach Didier Deschamps to rotate his side against the Africans at the Education City Stadium in Doha.

Kylian Mbappe, alongside his attacking partners Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele were all not included in the starting XI.

AC Milan lateral defender Theo Hernandez was also rested, and that led Camavinga to start as a left-back for the first time in his career.

In just 15 minutes of his first match at the World Cup, the Real Madrid midfielder was left trailing in his wake with the most filthy of nutmegs by Tunisia midfielder Aissa Laidouni
