Tunisia came from two sets down for its first taste of victory at the men’s World Cup to move into 11th in the 12-nation standings, sending Japan to its fourth straight loss in a five-set thriller on Monday in men’s World Cup volleyball.

After dropping the first two sets 25-23, 25-22, Tunisia clawed its way back into contention in the third set, winning 25-22 after Japan substitute server Ryu Morishige failed to check Tunisia’s recovery before 9,000 fans at Marine Messe Fukuoka.
