Soccer-Panama on course for maiden World Cup win

SARANSK, Russia, June 28 (Reuters) - Panama winger Jose Luis Rodriguez’s drive took a deflection off Tunisia defender Yassine Meriah in the 33rd minute to give the debutants a 1-0 lead at halftime in their final World Cup Group G match on Thursday.

Making their fifth World Cup appearance, Tunisia dominated possession and created a flurry of chances but failed to convert them as Panama scored against the run of play through the own goal.

Both teams have been eliminated with Belgium and England qualifying from the group. (Reporting by Sudipto Ganguly; editing by Ed Osmond)
