Khazri strike makes point; FOOTBALL shorts AFRICAN CUP.

TUNISIA came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw against Mali in the Africa Cup of Nations Group E. Former Sunderland man Wahbi Khazri's deflected free-kick levelled the scores with 20 minutes moved Tunisia second in the group and ensured they have a chance of qualifying for the latter stages of the tournament.

In a relatively even game which saw 32 fouls committed, Mali retained their position at the top of the group after two games played.

After a goalless first half, Mali led on the hour when Diadie Samassekou's corner was fumbled into his own net by goalkeeper Mouez Hassen.

The advantage only lasted 10 minutes, however, before Khazri sent a free-kick into the bottom corner to level.
