On Tuesday, Denmark will compete against Tunisia in a Group D match of the World Cup. The teams are joined in the group by the defending champions France as well as Australia, but the Danes are the favorites to advance to the next round after the French advanced to the semifinals of Euro 2020, taking runners-up England to extra time. The French advanced because of a significant improvement over the last several years that saw them advance to the semifinals of Euro 2020. As for Tunisia, they have returned to the World Cup and defeated Panama in their opening match of the campaign in 2018. This victory was Tunisia’s second ever in the World Cup.

The recent successes of this team have contributed significantly to the general upbeat atmosphere that surrounds it in Denmark. They are placed in the same group as France as they were in the Nations League, where they were victorious against France twice, most recently on September 25 by a score of 2-0. They have allowed a total of just five goals in their last seven matches, so they should have more than enough firepower to grab the victory today. You might anticipate facing a squad that is cohesive, which is confident, and which looks to advance swiftly up the field rather than playing slowly.

Wahbi Khazi, who is by far and away the greatest and most influential player on the team, will have to carry a significant amount of the burden of duty for Tunisia since it will be difficult to find anyone who believes they have enough to get through. Who in the world, though, will come up to the plate if he is defensively stifled? Youssef Msakni, who plays his club soccer in Qatar and has scored 17 goals in 82 games, will likely face a great deal of pressure, especially at the top of the box. As a result, Youssef Msakni’s performance will be given a higher priority.
The opening half an hour of the match is a close contest, but the Danes move ahead thanks to Eriksen’s creative play, which is the deciding factor.
