Denmark v. Tunisia

How to watch: 8 a.m. Eastern. FS1, Telemundo, Peacock (free).

How they match up: The Danes are as formidable as any European entrant, organized and cohesive, with world-class talents in the midfielders Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Christian Eriksen, who is, quite remarkably, healthy after collapsing on the field during the European Championships 17 months ago. Check with France, which lost to them twice over the last five months.

But before a rematch with the French this weekend, Denmark must contend with Tunisia, which fashions itself as a genuine nuisance. Though they project as the weakest of Africa’s five challengers, the Eagles of Carthage seem to relish frustrating more skilled opponents, relying on defense and counterattacking to squeeze out a result.
