Russia work for win over Tunisia

Russia have beaten Tunisia 2-0 in a far closer game than was expected. The Tunisians played with plenty of spirit, but did not have the finishing ability of the Russians.

Yegor Titov scored the first with a great strike from the edge of the area, and Valery Karpin sealed the victory with a penalty won by Sychev. The Russians now look like favourites to top Group H.
