Day three of the 2002 FIFA World Cup was filled some exciting moments and shocks.

Below we take a look at performers and flops…..
6. Angel Di Maria (Flop)

The Juventus star was ordinary at the flank for Argentina. He was completely neutralized and hardly had a meaningful impact.

5. Aymen Dahmen (Performer)

Denmark were left to ponder a frustrating 2022 FIFA World Cup Group D opener as Tunisia earned a deserved point. Goalkeeper Aymen Dahmen was impressive behind the sticks for the Carthage Eagles.

4. Aissa Laidouni (Performer)

Laidouni celebrated like he had won the World Cup, and Christian Eriksen, who very rarely shows any emotion or gets animated on a football pitch, had a wry smile on his face following the big hit.

The defensive midfielder was in inspired form for the Tunisians and arguably produced the performance of his life to thwart Eriksen’s Denmark.

3. Mohammed Al Owais (Performer)

When you come up against Argentina as a goalkeeper, the task is usually herculean. For Mohammed, he relished the moment and performed well.

2. Robert Lewandowski (Flop)

For a striker who is known for his clinical nature, Lewy failed to score from the penalty spot for Poland against Mexico. He failed to impress in the 0-0 draw.

1. Olivier Giroud (Performer)

Former Montpellier and Arsenal striker might have been expecting to watch the World Cup as a spectator. Injuries ensured that he was in the plan. He got a silver lining and impressed with a brace against Australia.
