Denmark vs Tunisia: Match Preview:

Perennial World Cup dark horses Denmark face a far less fancied Tunisia in their opening group game on Tuesday lunchtime.

Denmark were imperious during World Cup qualification, securing their place in Qatar after eight games, eight wins and zero goals conceded.

Tunisia defeated Mali by a narrow 1-0 aggregate scoreline in their two-legged play-off. “The match itself wasn’t fun,” Tunisia’s Mohamed Drager admitted, “it was a violent affair, but that’s football.”

Here’s everything you need to know about a contest with hopefully less violence but one which may not be much more fun for Tunisia.

Team News:

Denmark:

Kasper Hjulmand left the door ajar for any players on the cusp of an injury recovery by leaving five additional spaces open after confirming the first 21 members of the squad. Frederik Ronnow was part of the lagging quintet after missing Union Berlin’s final three Bundesliga matches with a hamstring injury.

Jonas Wind is also dealing with muscular problems. The Wolfsburg forward has been blighted by fitness concerns throughout the current campaign and is a doubt going into his nation’s opening match.

Tunisia:

Tunisia captain Youssef Msakni was robbed of a place at the 2018 World Cup by a ruptured cruciate ligament.

A matter of weeks ahead of this year’s tournament he suffered another injury but is expected to have recovered by the time the Carthage Eagles line up against Denmark.

Denmark vs Tunisia: Head to Head:

This will be the first time that the two sides will face each other in a competitive fixture. They squared off in a warm-up friendly for the 2002 FIFA World Cup when Denmark claimed a 2-1 victory in May 2002.

Tunisia have won two of their last three friendlies, keeping a clean sheet in their two victories, while Denmark have three wins in their last five competitive games.
