Tunisia draw Denmark 0-0 in the first match of Group D

Al-Rayyan: Denmark hit the woodwork in the second half when they drew 0-0 with Tunisia in their Group D World Cup opener on Tuesday night (local time).

It was a game that sizzled and sizzled, but never quite caught fire at Education City Stadium.

Against a backdrop of raucous noise provided by the thousands of Tunisian fans in the stands, Issam Jebali had a goal disallowed for offside in the 23rd minute, but it was Denmark who provided most of the attacking football in the first half.

The Danes picked up the pace in the second, with Christian Eriksen firing a rough left-footed shot that was saved by goalkeeper Aymen Dahmen in the 69th minute, and Andreas Cornelius hitting the post with a header from the resulting corner.

Tunisia defended resolutely and threatened on the counter as the Danes battled to bring them down, and in the end their fans were delighted with a point that sets them up for their next game against Australia as Denmark take on France.
