The opening match on Saturday 26 November comes from Group D and sees African side Tunisia take on Australia at the Al Janoub Stadium. The Carthage Eagles started their Group D campaign on a positive note by holding dark horses Denmark 0-0, with coach Jalel Kadri praising the strong support his team received in the stands.
“The fan factor was very positive for us. It mentally gave us a great lift and we are looking forward to seeing the fans continue to do that for us,” Kadri said. “It really helped us in the game, but tactically and physically we did well too.”
The focus them switches to Group C for the afternoon and early evening, with Poland battling Saudi Arabia at Education City Stadium, before Argentina and Mexico renew their rivalry at the World Cup with a clash at Lusail Iconic Stadium.
La Albiceleste suffered a shock 2-1 loss at the hands of Saudi Arabia earlier in the week and will be hungry to set things straight – and re-assert their status as one of the leading favourites to win the tournament.
“There are no excuses,” said Argentine star Lionel Messi. “We are going to be more united than ever. This group [team] is strong, and we have shown it. It is a situation that we haven’t gone through in a long time. Now we have to show that this is a real group.
“It’s a painful loss but we have to continue to trust ourselves. We must turn the page and move on. We have to analyse what went wrong. Focus on the positives and turn our attention to the game against Mexico.”
Saturday’s actin wraps up at Stadium 974 in Doha with reigning champions France taking on Denmark in an all-European battle. The Danes have gotten the better of Les Bleus in the teams’ recent meetings and coach Kasper Hjulmand is hoping for that trend to continue.
“We definitely had an aim of winning [against Tunisia] because we know of course a result in this game could have helped us, and now it could be complicated,” Hjulmand said. “But it’s not over and we are still in it, it’s one point each and now we have two very great games, and we’re looking forward to France.”
