20 years passed before Tunisia returned to the World Cup. The second trip was less successful than the first, with losses to England and Columbia. But Tunisia managed a 1-1 draw against Group Stage winner Romania, scoring its only goal of the tournament.
Tunisia’s performance at the 2002 World Cup was nearly identical to its showing four years earlier. The team again went 0-1-2 and again scored its lone goal in a 1-1 draw, this time versus Belgium.
A third consecutive World Cup appearance produced yet another 0-1-2 finish. Tunisia did score three goals this time around, tying Saudi Arabia 2-2 and losing 3-1 to Spain.
