GameScore is not producing the right output

I'm confused, it told me to use str to return the player 1 score and player 2 score. I tried it just like the directions show and how we did it in the class. can someone please scan the code and see what the bug is?

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return "Player 1:{}; Player 2:{}".format(self.score, self.score)

you are trying to format with self.score twice. it tells you that self.score is a tuple with both players scores as its elements. you can slice into a tuple just like a list or string, with the [].
