World Cup: Daily update from day 2 in Qatar

Denmark and Tunisia meet in Group D of the World Cup 2022 in Qatar today.

Last summer Denmark made a stirring run to the semi-finals of the Euros, somehow absorbing the shock of Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest in the group stage and going on to record one of their best performances at a major tournament. Now, at the Qatar World Cup almost 18 months later, Kasper Hjulmand’s team will look to replicate that remarkable effort.

First up for the Danes is a Group D clash with Tunisia, who will likely be vying with Denmark for the second-place spot in this pool. Elsewhere in the group, France are out to avoid the recent curse of defending champions exiting the next edition of the World Cup in the group stage, and their talented squad is expected to do that and qualify first here. With Australia not fancied to do much in Qatar, this game between Denmark and Tunisia could therefore be decisive in Group D.

The winner may just set themselves up to advance to the knockout stages at the other team’s expense, while a draw would make for an interesting dynamic in the group ahead of the next two matchdays.

Denmark 0-0 Tunisia

HALF-TIME: All-square at the break at the Education City Stadium – and Tunisia will be the happier of the two teams!

Denmark haven’t quite clicked so far and they can thank Kasper Schmeichel for not being behind after that terrific save late on in the half.

Work to do for last year’s European Championships semi-finalists!

Denmark 0-0 Tunisia

45 mins: Denmark going to be forced into a substitution here!

Thomas Delaney has gone down in the centre of the pitch with an injury he sustained in a tackle…

He’s been replaced by Mikkel Damsgaard.

Here’s a rarity too – a normal amount of added time! Four minutes at the end of the first-half – and even that’s a lot for a first-half!

Issam Jebali is played through – the Tunisia striker chips the Denmark keeper but the ex-Leicester man somehow gets a right-hand to the ball, tipping it wide!

Denmark 0-0 Tunisia

42 mins: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg looks to beat Laidouni with a flip-flap before going over in the box… he wants a penalty but not enough in it for the referee.

Denmark 0-0 Tunisia

39 mins: The ball breaks to Tunisia’s Aïssa Laïdouni in the box from a corner but he can’t find the target – but boy did he get some power behind that shot!

Just over five to go until half-time… still level here.

Denmark 0-0 Tunisia

27 mins: Wicked ball in from the left is inviting for Denmark striker Andreas Skov Olsen.. but the Club Brugge man can’t quite get there in time!

Denmark have found their feet in this game.
