The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia picked their first draw and points against the 2022 FIFA World Cup ‘Dark Horses’ Denmark in their group D opener in Qatar.
Denmark struggled to assert themselves in the first half of their 2022 FIFA World Cup Group D opener against Tunisia.
Christian Eriksen, making his first appearance at a major tournament since he suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch at the European Championships, was a threat with his delivery from set-pieces.
But the African side, who have never qualified from the group stage, created the better chances and were unlucky not to lead at the interval.
Mohamed Drager’s deflected shot whistled just wide and Aissa Laidouni lashed another effort off target before Issam Jebali forced Kasper Schmeichel into a brilliant save to keep it scoreless at half-time at the Education City Stadium.
Tunisia will face Australia in the next game as Denmark engages in an all European clash against defending champions, France.
