Blunt France Clinch Top Spot In Group C

2018 World Cup Report: Denmark v France 26 June 2018

By SL International - Jun 26, 2018 05:51 PM

2018 World Cup

Result: Denmark 0-0 France

Date: 26 June 2018

Venue: Luzhniki Stadium

France secured top spot in Group C after playing to a 0-0 draw with Denmark, who also qualified for the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup.

Having already qualified for the knockout stage, Le Blues coach Didier Deschamps opted to rest the likes of Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and Hugo Lloris.

The French dominated possession in the early stages, although Olivier Giroud's 15th minute strike at goal was the threatening effort on target for the opening 20 minutes.

This proved to be the trend for the rest of the half as Deschamps' men were restricted to efforts from distance, none of which were seriously threatening for Kasper Schmeicel.

The sides entered the halftime break with the score level at 0-0, although neither side looked threatening at any stage.

The Danes started the second half on a lively note, as Christian Eriksen tested Steve Mandanda with a couple efforts from distance in the opening 15 minutes.

With France struggling to carve out chances, Deschamps introduced Olympique Lyon star Nabil Fekir for Antoine Griezmann in the 68th minute.

Fekir nearly handed France the lead with eight minutes remaining but his curling effort from distance was palmed away by Schmeichel.

Unfortunately, neither side could create a clear cut chance in the final stages of the half as the clash ended goalless.

As a result, France finish top of the group while the Danes have secured second spot.
