Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as Panama meets Tunisia in the World Cup group stage.

Panama and Tunisia will be going home after their World Cup group finale, but they’ll both look to do so on a high note.

Both sides have fallen to Group G favorites England and Belgium in Russia, getting eliminated after two matches in the process. Even in a losing effort, the World Cup has been historic for Panama, which scored the first goal in its nation’s history on this stage in a 6-1 loss to England. A win or draw would secure the nation’s first points on it.

In Los Canaleros’ way is Tunisia, which fell to England in heartbreaking fashion in its opener and is eyeing its first World Cup win since 1978 after 0-2-1 group showings in 1998, 2002 and 2006.
