Tallking Points
This is the first time Tunisia has earned a point against an European opposition in the FIFA World Cup.
Two goals have been ruled out as offside in the match today. Adding this to the Argentina vs Saudi Arabia match where three Argentina goals were ruled out as offside, it takes the total tally of 5 goals in today’s round of games.
Denmark is unbeaten against African opposition at the World Cup (W2 D2) while Tunisia has never prevailed against European opposition (D3 L7). So if Tunisia holds on, it will bag points against a European team in the World Cup for the first time.
None of Denmark’s 30 goals at the World Cup have come outside the box . No team has scored as many times in the tournament without ever finding the net from long range.
Denmark vs Tunisia lineups
Denmark XI: Schmeichel (GK), Kristensen, Andersen, Christensen, Kjaer, Maehle, Hojbjerg, Delaney, Eriksen, Skov Olsen, Dolberg
Tunisia XI: Dahmen (GK), Drager, Bronn, Talbi, Meriah, Abdi, Laidouni, Skhiri, Msakni, Slimane, Jebali

Match Preview

Denmark goes into its opening World Cup game against a tricky Tunisia side on Tuesday in the unusual position of being among Europe’s dark horses, in with an outside chance of winning the tournament if they can get everything right in Qatar.

To ensure the best possible start, the Danes will turn to playmaker Christian Eriksen, who suffered a heart attack in their Euro 2020 opener against Finland in Copenhagen but has since made a full recovery.

A 5-1 drubbing by Brazil in Paris aside, Tunisia’s recent performances have been steady without being spectacular, but it is still capable of punishing any mistakes the Danes might make.

At the 2018 World Cup, Tunisia held England scoreless until Harry Kane scored in the 91st minute to give the English a narrow win.

Appearing at its sixth finals, Tunisia has never made the knockout stage. Being drawn into a group with Denmark, France and Australia has left it with a mountain to climb.
