Iraq lose 2-0 in Tunisia in friendly match

Iraq fell to a 2-0 defeat in a friendly match away to 2018 World Cup participants Tunisia on Friday. The hosts took the lead within four minutes through a Wahbi Khazri tap-in and doubled the lead before the half-hour mark through Bassem Srarfi's close-range effort.

Iraq forward Mohanad Ali almost scored a stunning goal as his long-range shot with his weaker foot cannoned off the crossbar but that was the closest the Lions of Mesopotamia got to netting as Tunisia walked away with a deserved victory.
