On his miraculous return to international tournament football following his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, it was clear from the get-go that Christian Eriksen would not be receiving any special treatment from a totally committed Tunisia side – that were simply willing to give everything to win in their Group D opener against Denmark. The feisty goalless encounter was just a few minutes old when Carthage Eagles’ midfielder Aissa Laidouni slammed into the Manchester United playmaker – taking the ball and a bit of the man – before celebrating the thunderous tackle like he’d just scored the winning goal.
As the ball broke to Eriksen in space on the right flank, the relaxed technician took his time on the ball but a heavy touch was quickly greeted with a crashing challenge that fired up the Tunisian crowd, who had travelled in their numbers to the Education City Stadium in Doha to cheer on their beloved nation.
Laidouni then roared in animalistic fashion and rallied Tunisia’s supporters by waving his arms to provoke a positive booming reaction.
The Ferencvaros ace was evidently bang up for this tasty matchup as the adrenaline pumped through his veins and transmitted through to his international team-mates, who were out to agitate Denmark from the first whistle.
Eriksen reacted with a wry smirk as he strolled towards the ball on the side of the pitch. If he wasn’t aware of Tunisia’s commitment to the cause – he was now.
