Austalia and Tunisia go head to head in Group D as both teams try to find their first win of the World Cup.

Tunisia shared a goalless draw with Denmark in their opening match, while Australia were well beaten by the reigning world champions France.

It means that the loser here is likely to be heading home from the tournament, and even a draw might not be enough for either of these two sides given the strength of the other nations in the group.

The need to win could open up the match and provide an entertaining battle with nothing to lose.

Here is everything you need to know about the World Cup group game.
