The second half started with a lot of pressure from Liberia, and the Lone Star pulled one back with a goal from Paye in the 71st minutes. Tunisia double the score 2 minutes after, with a goal from Khalifa in the 73rd minutes and a penalty was awarded to Tunisia in the 77th minutes. The penalty was converted by Lahmar given Tunisia a 4-1 advantage.

 The game ended 4-1, with Tunisia emerging as group leader, and Liberia taking third place after Togo defeated Djibouti.
