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.
Denmark: Schmeichel; Andersen, Kjaer, Christensen; Wass, Delaney, Hojbjerg, Maehle; Eriksen; Braithwaite, Dolberg.
Tunisia: Ben Said; Drager, Ifa, Talbi, Maaloul; Skhiri, Laidouni, Slimane; Khazri, Jaziri, Msakni.
Denmark and Tunisia have met only once before in 2002 and Denmark came out victorious.
