The tactics, nevertheless, maintained leveled the cartons until the 33 minutes, when a strong shot of Jose Luis Rodriguez, that struck in the Tunisian Yassine Meriah, nestling in own door.

For the second time, coach Hernán Darío Gómez made a surprising move, by removing the only Panamanian forward, Gabriel Torres, for defender Harold Cummings; the change was taken by the Tunisians as a signal that Panama wanted to maintain the result, so it launched into attack immediately.

This reading paid off to the African team, as Ben Youssef tied the game in the 55th minute and then Wahbi Kharzi scored the winner ten minutes later.

In that interim, Panama lost its captain and symbolic figure, defender Román Torres, who was visibly injured by his knee.
