Denmark is looking to improve upon its second-place group play finish in the 2018 World Cup.
Of course, doing so would all but certainly require finishing ahead of France, the defending World Cup champion looking to become the first team to repeat since Brazil in 1962.
But the Danes might have the talent to do so. They certainly have the confidence, having defeated France twice in Nations League play this year. Denmark, during the 2018 World Cup, also played the eventual champs to a scoreless draw en route to their second-place finish in Group C.
Their path to first place in the 2022 World Cup begins with a matchup against Tunisia.

Who are the players to watch in Denmark vs. Tunisia?
The easy pick for Denmark is Christian Eriksen. The Manchester United midfielder will be making a dramatic return to international football 17 months after collapsing from cardiac arrest during the opening game of the 2020 European Championships held in 2021. Eriksen, who has scored 39 goals and added 26 assists in 117 caps for Denmark, has made a full recovery and will play an integral role for the Danes.
Tunisia’s Wahbi Khazri is approaching the top of his nation’s all-time scoring list. With 24 goals in 69 matches, Khazri is 12 away from tying the record held by Issam Jemâa. The 31-year-old veteran tallied three goals in eight qualifying appearances.
