Denmark were denied all three points by a valiant Tunisian team, as the game ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Denmark locked horns with Tunisia in a Group D match at the Education City Stadium in Al-Rayyan, Qatar. Denmark started with their standard 3-5-2 formation, with Schmeichel in goal. Their backline consisted of Andersen, Kjaer, and Christensen. Kristensen, Hojberg, Delaney, Eriksen, and Maehle were at the center of the field, while Olsen and Dolberg were the front two for Denmark.

Tunisia used a 3-4-2-1 formation with Dahmen as their goalkeeper under Jalel Kadri. Their back three was Talbi, Meriah, and Bronn, with Abdi, Laidouni, Skhiri, and Drager playing midfield. Tunisia’s forwards were injected with Msakni and Slimane. Tunisia changed three players from the team that lost to Brazil. The sensational Wahbi Khazri, who has been involved in each of Tunisia’s last four World Cup goals, starts from the bench.

Denmark got things started when the Manchester United man went through the flanks on the right but was met by Laidouni, who looked as fired up as ever. On the other hand, Tunisia advanced through Drager’s shot only to have it deflected by Christensen. Delaney then appeared out of nowhere to pass it to Hojbjerg, who attempted a shot on goal but appeared overconfident.

Jebali was having the game of his life, making incredible runs, and his chip was just over Schmeichel, a moment of magic that was missed. Denmark was then awarded a corner, which Eriksen took and fed Christensen, who came agonizingly close to hitting the post.

Tunisia kept their cool after a couple of substitutions and ran airborne with a promising Denmark. Kasper Hjulmand’s men finally showed their quality and brought their A-game, but the Tunisians gave their hearts and played brave football to deny Denmark all three points, and they can take a lot of pride and confidence into their next game.
