Tunisia kick start their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign with a good result against Denmark on Tuesday.
The African side defied all odds as they held Denmark to a goalless draw in a Group D match at the Education City Stadium.
Both sides had chances to score but the goalkeepers at both ends were up to the task.
Tunisia also had a goal ruled out for offside in the 23rd minute and another good penalty appeal turned down.
The Danes were the better side in the second half, Christian Eriksen forced a save from goalkeeper Aymen Dahmen in the 69th minute, before Andreas Cornelius hit the post with a header from the resulting corner.
Following the draw, Tunisia become the first African side to pick a point at the ongoing tournament in Qatar. African Champions, Senegal lost 2-0 to the Netherlands on Monday night.
Up next for Tunisia is a tricky game against Australia, while Denmark face France.
