Denmark hooked by Tunisia

Before the big debut of the French team against Australia, this Tuesday evening, Denmark wanted to quickly put pressure on the Blues of Didier Deschamps by winning against Tunisia. For the occasion, the Skov Olsen-Dolberg-Eriksen trio, which had hurt the French very badly during the Nations League, was aligned. On the Tunisian side, there were players who had passed through the French Championship like Skhiri, Bronn or the Lorient defender Talbi.

And the turn of the meeting was quickly surprising at the start of the game. While we expected a clear domination of the Danes, the Carthage Eagles seemed liberated and did not hesitate to keep their foot on the ball. It was Dräger who offered himself the first opportunity, but Christensen deviated in extremis (11th). Alone against Schmeichel, Jebali then thought to open the scoring, but was flagged offside (23rd). Two first scares for the Dynamites, surprisingly under pressure in this first period.

Tunisia held at the end of the match

In a game that was ultimately very open, the Danes finally showed a more incisive face in the second act. After a good construction, Skov Olsen also saw his goal being disallowed, again for an offside position. With a header, Dolberg was also close to opening the scoring, but still missed target. An undecided match, from which neither team managed to make the difference. The Danish block, which had been the strength of this team during the playoffs, showed major shortcomings.

Eriksen then wanted to save the revolt with a sublime long shot, but Dahmen pulled out all the stops (69′). Moments later, the post saved Tunisia, much to the dismay of Cornelius (70′). And finally, neither of the two teams managed to win in this meeting. A draw point which still suits the Tunisians, before facing Australia on the next day. On the other hand, Denmark are already under pressure and will have to play a great game and remain waiting for the result of the Blues, tonight (8:00 p.m.).
