Denmark vs. France - Football Match Report

Share

France had already qualified and Denmark needed a point to be certain, although a 2-0 win for already eliminated Peru against Australia sent them through regardless of their result.

Thirty-six games in Russian Federation had failed to result in a goalless stalemate, but neither France nor Denmark ever looked like scoring in a tedious affair. "We were actually expecting a nice game". The 0-0 that followed was the first scoreless draw of the World Cup - and we should probably be thankful that it comes after 36 games.

In its first match of group play, Denmark handed Peru a 1-0 loss to pick up three points.

Another day, another set of World Cup matches to be played as we count down to the big day where one country will lift the trophy.

"We cannot be only focused on Christian but as I said he's got the key role in his team so we need to look after him". The 33-year-old made his first and only save in the 54th minute, spilling Christian Eriksen's free-kick before pouncing on the loose ball.

Thauvin's girlfriend Charlotte Pirroni was among the ladies in the crowd - along with the partners of Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Raphael Varane.

"Today we couldn't get a better start but we know we can play better".

It was the longest a World Cup had gone without a goalless draw since 1954, a tournament of 26 games which all delivered at least one goal.

Perhaps sensing it was time to make entertainment midway through the first half, fans created a wave that made three laps of the stadium.

Denmark has a tough defence anchored by veteran captain Simon Kjaer, and a high-class goalkeeper in Kasper Schmeichel. They will discover their opponents in the next round later on Tuesday, with Argentina needing to beat Nigeria in Saint Petersburg to stand a chance of qualifying. "If you'd read the whole article you would have seen I was comparing with the '98 team [which won the World Cup on home soil, ed.]".

Denmark gets an extra day off and plays the Group D victor, likely Croatia, on Sunday evening (Monday NZT) in Nizhny Novgorod.
