Denmark vs Tunisia: Twitter reacts as Denmark and Tunisia settle for stalemate


Denmark were denied all three points by a brave Tunisian team, as the game ended in a 0–0 deadlock. Denmark faced 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 Andersson, Kjaer and Christensen. Christensen, Højberg, Delaney, Eriksen and Mahe were in the center of the field, while Olsen and Dolberg were the front two for Denmark.

Tunisia used a 3–4–2–1 formation under Jalel Kadri with Dahmen as their goalkeeper. Behind them were the three Talbys, Mariah and Braun, with Abdi, Ladouni, Skerry and Dragar playing midfield. Tunisia’s forwards were injected with Masqueni and Slimane. Tunisia replaced three players from the team that lost to Brazil. Sensational Wahbi Khajri, who has been involved in each of Tunisia’s last four World Cup goals, starts from the bench.

Denmark started things off when the Manchester United man went down the right flank but was met by Ladouni, who looked as fired up as ever. Tunisia, on the other hand, went ahead through Dragar’s shot, only for it to be deflected by Christensen. Delaney then appeared out of nowhere to pass to Hojbjerg, who attempted a shot on goal but appeared overconfident.

Jabali was playing the game of his life, making an incredible run, and his chip was right over Schmeichel, a moment of magic that was missed. Denmark were then awarded a corner, which Eriksen took and fed to Christensen, who came very close to hitting the post.

After a few substitutions Tunisia kept their cool and held an aerial race with a promising Denmark. Kasper Hjulmund’s men finally showed their quality and brought their A-game, but the Tunisians had their heart and played brave football to deny Denmark all three points, and they can take a lot of pride and confidence into their next game. Huh.
