Denmark joined France in the last 16 of the World Cup in the wake of playing out the main goalless draw of the competition, which was welcomed by boos at the last shriek.
An attract was adequate to see a much-changed French side best Group C, while Denmark knew a point would be sufficient for them as well, regardless of whether Australia beat Peru.
That situation brought about an amusement that needed desire, shots and any component of peril, not helped by news halfway through the main a large portion of that Peru were winning in Sochi.
The fans in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium were at first sufficiently eager, particularly the red-shirted Danes who pressed one end.
Be that as it may, they saw little in the method for objective mouth energy, with the primary shot on target touching base in the 39th moment, when France’s Antoine Griezmann swung to shoot an agreeable exertion at Kasper Schmeichel from the edge of the region.
Denmark fashioned the most obvious opportunity with regards to the main half, when France attendant Steve Mandanda simply beat Christian Eriksen to Andreas Cornelius’ amazing low cross.
In any case, their solitary shot on target came following 54 minutes when Mandanda spilled Eriksen’s free-kick. The Marseille attendant recouped before Cornelius could gain by the bounce back.
The two sides ventured up their well being first approach as the second half advanced – bringing sneers and shrieks from numerous neutrals in the stadium – to guarantee they got the outcome they wanted.
France, who rested midfield trio Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Corentin Tolisso – every one of whom were a booking far from a boycott – will play the sprinters up in Group D in Kazan on Saturday.
That could be any of the four groups, while Denmark’s destiny is a little clearer after Peru’s 2-0 prevail upon Australia affirmed their capability in second place. Age Hareide’s side will play the Group D champs, either Croatia or Nigeria, in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday.
France must hold up to discover their rhythm
France had won their initial two games without truly finding their mood and Didier Deschamps’ choice to roll out six improvements implied that was constantly improbable to occur here either.
There were some short looks of the quality that Deschamps has available to him, on account of Griezmann’s shrewd development behind the Denmark protection, and ideal back Djibril Sidibe’s keeps running up the correct flank.
Liverpool target Nabil Fekir likewise demonstrated some pleasant contacts when he swapped Griezmann throughout the previous 20 minutes, and came near breaking the gridlock when he let go into the side-netting.
Be that as it may, somehow there was little desperation in plain view, and no sense the France players wanted to secure their third progressive win.
