Hannibal reveals on-pitch ‘talk’ with Eriksen and inside Man Utd knowledge that ‘worked’ for Tunisia Hannibal reveals on-pitch ‘talk’ with Eriksen and inside Man Utd knowledge that ‘worked’ for Tunisia Date published: Wednesday 23rd November 2022 3:14 - Will Ford Tunisia star Hannibal Mejbri has revealed how his inside knowledge of Manchester United teammate Christian Eriksen helped his side to a point against Denmark.The Manchester United midfielder's international manager described him as the"heatbeat of the team" ahead of today's game against Tunisia.It looked as if it would be heartbreak for Tunisia when Mexican referee Cesar Ramos went to the pitchside monitor at the Education City Stadium.Man United FOR SALE: Glazers willing to sell Red Devils as club confirm possibility CLOSER Bournemouth to appoint O'Neil as permanent head coach gone Ronaldo leaves Man United: Portugal icon sends message to fans, club release statement ARABIAN NIGHTMARE Argentina 1-2 Saudi Arabia: Messi and co stunned in huge World Cup shock blockbuster Souness and Keane in heated exchange as legends clash over Argentina penalty DENIED Former Wales Women's star had last laugh after being refused entry for 'banned' hat Advertisement “I think because he scored it’s like, ‘alright, Man of the Match’.

The United youngster came off the bench in his country’s 0-0 draw with the Danes on Tuesday, and Hannibal reckons his advice to his teammates played a part.He said: “I trained with Eriksen every day at Manchester United.The 30-year-old lined up against Tunisia as his side got their World Cup campaign under way at the 40,000-seat Education City Stadium in Doha.I know he’s a very good player.Denmark reached the semi-finals of that tournament without their talisman, and head coach Kasper Hjulmand said on Monday that his side had come to Qatar to win the World Cup.So, I told the boys in our midfield that he was a very good player and not to give him any space.He collapsed during Denmark's Euro 2020 clash with Finland at Copenhagen's Parken Stadium and had to have a device fitted to regulate his heart.I also told them to be careful with our challenges because he’s very clever, skilful.“I standby my comment at the moment.

“I don’t think we gave him any, I think it worked.The Manchester United midfielder was part of a team that sailed through its World Cup qualifying group by winning its first nine games - with clean sheets through the first eight.Tunisia could count on huge support with Doha home to a large Tunisian population and the north Africans created a raucous atmosphere, giving the feeling that this was an away game for Denmark.I talked to him on the field.Do you want to know what I said? Ah, that would be telling.More on Christian Eriksen.It’s a conversation to stay between me and him.Skipper Youssef Msakni headed over the resulting corner and Tunisia continued to press with the lively Issam Jebali a constant concern for the Denmark defence.” Hannibal believes Tunisia were good value for their point, adding: “The Tunisian mentality is that we are aggressive – but we are also good players.talkSPORT is widely available across the UK via DAB digital radio and on 1089 or 1053 AM.

I wasn’t surprised at all by the result.We’re good defensively and every team we play against knows that.This time there was no offside flag to deny Jebali as he went one-on-one with Schmeichel and attempted a dinked finish.” Denmark Kasper Hjulmand admits qualification has “become complicated” for his side after the draw.“We played too nervously and too slow, and we didn’t find ourselves in the first half,” Hjulmand said.“There was a period when we got into it but we were never calm and comfortable, that came later in the game.Andreas Skov Olsen thought he had given Denmark the lead after 55 minutes when he drove home from 12 yards.

There’s no doubt we played under par.“It (qualifying from the group) has become complicated but it’s not over.We are underway with the tournament, but our heads would have been a little higher with a better result.Denmark were camped in Tunisia territory during the closing stages, but could not find the winner that would have got them off to the perfect start in Group D.” READ MORE: Goals are great, but have you ever seen Tunisia draw 0-0 with Denmark? Tunisia boss Jalel Kadri hailed the fans’ impact on the game.“The fan factor was very positive for us,” he said.

“It mentally gave us a great lift and we are looking forward to seeing the fans continue to do that for us.“It really helped us in the game, but tactically and physically we did well too.” Share.
