Tunisia squandered serious chances and settled for a goalless draw with Denmark after an enthusiastic performance courtesy of thousands of passionate fans in the first round of Group D of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Tuesday.

The stands of the Education City Stadium were covered with red and Tunisian flags, and it seemed that the team of coach Jalal Al-Qadri was playing on his land, so he pressed to attack in long periods of the match against a competitor that many nominated to be the black horse in the championship.

A goal by Tunisian striker Issam Jebali, a professional in Denmark, was ruled out in the first half for offside, while midfielder Issa Lidouni missed goalkeeper Casper Schmeichel strangely at the beginning of the second half.

Tunisia goalkeeper Ayman Dahman did not face a difficult test before Christian Eriksen’s powerful shot in the 69th minute and brilliantly turned it into a corner kick.

Eriksen, returning to play in a major tournament for the first time since suffering a heart attack at Euro 2020, missed the impact of tight defensive marking and later defending champions France play Australia in the same group.
