The deadlock was broken in the 33rd minute when Panama midfielder Jose Luis Rodriguez's shot took an unlucky deflection off Tunisia defender Yassine Meriah, who was credited with an own goal.

Tunisia equalized in the 51st minute with forward Fakhreddine Ben Yussef scoring from close range. 

Tunisia took the lead in the 66th minute when forward Wahbi Khazri put the ball into the back of net.   

Both teams had been eliminated from the tournament before their match after losing both their opening games.
