Highlights: Tunisia come from behind to deny Panama their first ever World Cup win

Tunisia claimed their first win at the World Cup for 40 years as a second-half fightback saw them beat Panama 2-1 in Saransk.

Panama brightened up a drab first half when Jose Luis Rodriquez's 20-yard shot deflected off Yassine Meriah and wrongfooted Aymen Mathlouthi in the Tunisia goal.

It was officially credited as a Meriah own goal, but Tunisia were level within six minutes of the re-start as Fakhreddine Ben Youssef turned home Wahbi Khazri's cross for the 2,500th goal in World Cup finals history.
