  • Denmark will be looking to prove that their emotional run to the EURO 2020 semi-finals wasn’t a flash in the pan with another strong performance in Qatar and will be able to call upon Christian Eriksen for the first time in a major tournament match since his collapse mid-game against Finland, which saw him go into cardiac arrest on the pitch.
  • Central defender Andreas Christensen only recently returned to action for club side Barcelona following an ankle injury and his fitness is the only real concern for head coach Kasper Hjulmand


  • Tunisia’s last FIFA World Cup outing came back in 2018, when they failed to get out of a tough group which included both Belgium and England and it doesn’t get any easier for them this time round.
  • They are captained by Youssef Msakni and can also call upon the likes of Wahbi Khazri and Hannibal Mejbri, who is currently on the books at Premier League giants Manchester United.



PREDICTED XI (3-4-3): Schmeichael; Andersen, Kjaer, Christensen; Wass, Hojbjerg, Delaney, Maehle; Skov Olsen, Dolberg, Eriksen


QUESTIONABLE: Christensen (Fitness)


PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Dahmen; Ifa, Meriah, Talbi; Kechrida, Chaalali, Skhiri, Laidouni, Maaloul; Msakni, Khazri




  • Denmark boasts an impressive record of having qualified from their group in four of their previous five FIFA World Cup appearances, with the exception being 2010
  • Denmark have lost only three of their previous 15 FIFA World Cup group stage matches (W8 D4)
  • Denmark have won their opening match in four of their previous five FIFA World Cup appearances, with the exception being 2010 when they lost against the Netherlands
  • Denmark’s last three FIFA World Cup matches have all finished level. They exited Russia 2018 via a penalty shoot-out against Croatia
  • Denmark have won five of their last seven international matches (L2)
  • Denmark have only failed to score in three of their previous 20 FIFA World Cup matches
  • Christian Eriksen and Simon Kjær are both appearing at their third World Cup, this sees them equal the record of Martin Jorgensen who made three FIFA World Cup participations for Denmark in 1998, 2002 and 2010
  • Christian Eriksen holds the record as the youngest player make an appearance Denmark at the FIFA World Cup, he featured against the Netherlands in 2010 at the age of 18 years and 120 days
  • Tunisia claimed a notable landmark on their debut appearance at the finals in 1978 - a 3-1 victory against Mexico in their opening game saw them become the first African team to win a match at a World Cup final tournament
  • Their second victory in the competition did not come until 40 years after their maiden triumph as they defeated Panama 2-1 in their final group match at Russia 2018 to give them a first taste of victory in the tournament since 1978 and end a run of 13 World Cup matches without a win
  • Tunisia kept only one clean sheet in their previous 15 FIFA World Cup matches, the only one coming against Germany FR in 1978
  • Tunisia have only failed to score in one of their last six World Cup matches
  • Denmark are the 14th different nation that Tunisia have faced in what is their 16th World Cup match
  • There are ten players in the Tunisia squad who also featured at Russia 2018
  • Wahbi Khazri scored in Tunisia’s last two matches at Russia 2018 and is the only Tunisian player to register more than one goal at the finals


Denmark have flown under the radar in the build-up to the tournament, with many preferring to talk about those nations with the bigger-names at their disposal. However, from a team-perspective, not many can match the Danes, who have shown that each player within their squad is capable of playing a key role to a high-standard which has led to them hugely impressing on the pitch. Tunisia are not the easiest of teams to play against and won’t be easy to break down, plus Denmark will have to be on their guard against Tunisia’s attacking threat. Over the 90 minutes though, Denmark should wind up too strong for their opponents and ultimately come out on top.
