Denmark collides with a rocky Tunisia

Denmark started in the World Cup in a second step, without being a favorite although with the highest aspirations, but in its debut in Qatar it ran into the harsh reality, which was raised on the grass of the Ciudad de la Educación stadium by a rocky Tunisia. The Danes did not go beyond a goalless draw against a Tunisian team that stood up and was even better until the break.

The first part reflected the enthusiasm for the premiere of 'Águilas de Cartago', plenty of momentum, aggressive in each duel and with a very high pace that overshadowed the virtues of the Nordics, technically better. Jalel Kadri's pupils, who applied very high pressure, celebrated each defensive action as if it were a goal.

That energetic initial approach also served to disturb the Scandinavian goal, first with a distant shot from Dräger that the Barça player deflected Christensen, then with a shot from a ecstatic Laïdouni and on the brink of half-time they had the clearest chance in Jebali's boots . The striker chipped the ball in a one-on-one with Schmeichel, but the goalkeeper deflected the ball providentially for a corner.

Denmark, which debuted the protest shirt with the shield overshadowed, tried to remain calm in the face of the African avalanche, trying to impose their game, although they only found small cracks in their rival on the wings, where they got tired of making crosses to a too disconnected Dolberg .

After the restart, Hjulmand's men tamed the Tunisian beasts through possession, who trusted their luck to the counterattack. Dolberg had the first opportunity in a missed header and Dahmen made the first save of merit before a shot from Eriksen, back to a great tournament after the scare in the Euro Cup Right in the subsequent corner, Cornelius, less than a meter from the goal, incomprehensibly headed the ball to the post when the goal was already being called. The Danes continued to percussion, but it was a want and I can't against a proud Tunisia that deserved, at least, a draw.
