The last round of group matches are a make it or  break it clash for the teams. With the both the matches in the group being played at the same time the fans would also want to keep a close eye on the other match as well along with the Denmark vs France clash[spacer height=”30px”]

France sit comfortable at top of the table and would want to finish it there as well. For Denmark a draw would be enough to see them through to the Last 16. In case of loss, Denmark would want Australia to lose the another match against Peru.[spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]With Peru being already eliminated and Australia still with a meek chance of qualifying if they manage to improve on their Goal difference, Denmark vs France sounds like a interesting contest.[spacer height=”30px”]

A Repeat of History[spacer height=”30px”]

World Cup of 1998 saw the French captain (Didier Deschamps)being rested for their final group match against Denmark with the Blues have already qualified for the next round. Deschamps celebrated from the bench as the French team won 2-1.[spacer height=”30px”]

Denmark also qualified with the other match ending in a draw and unable to find a potential winner. 20 years later Deschamps finds himself in the same position and Denmark will also want history to repeat.[spacer height=”30px”]

Denmark[spacer height=”30px”]

Denmark managed to win their opening game against Peru by one goal. After ending on level with Australia in their second game Denmark are currently second with 4 points with Australia being the other team with a chance of coming second if only Denmark lose and Australia manage to win their last match. A point is what Denmark want going into the game and have Yussuf Poulsen suspended over two consecutive yellow which saw him conceding a penalty in both the games.[spacer height=”30px”]

Speaking ahead of the game here is what the Danish Coach spoke about his side facing France :[spacer height=”30px”]

“This is the best group of players that I have worked with and we don’t have a side that works well with just parking the bus.”[spacer height=”20px”]

 “They are young and they are going to learn from this. It is hard mentally and physically to go through this. But I think they have done really well to work hard for the team and have a good morale going into the match against France.”[spacer height=”20px”]

“We made mistakes against Australia that better teams would punish us for,” he said. “We cannot risk that now. We must be much more alert to France and their counterattacking game. If we make technical mistakes in the final third it will make it too easy for them.”[spacer height=”20px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]Players to watch out for in Denmark vs France :

Christian Eriksen[spacer height=”30px”]

The Spurs man has been pivotal for the Danes in World Cup Qualification. He also scored the only goal against Australia in the second match. He needs to deliver in order to see the Danes pass this French midfield. His vision and passing would be put to test against a sturdy French defense and Kante in the Denmark vs France clash.[spacer height=”30px”]

“Christian is a player who can change matches and we try to get him involved as much as we can,”[spacer height=”20px”]

“The opponents, they are going to be very cautious and careful about him, but he is used to that, isn’t he, from the Premier League.[spacer height=”20px”]

We hope that we will get him up to a good level and that he will be able to show good things at this World Cup.”[spacer height=”20px”]

Hareide said.[spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]Kasper Schemeichel[spacer height=”30px”]

The Dane made a quite a record going 533 minutes without conceding surpassing the record previously held by his father.He is currently second among goalkeepers with most saves(10) in this world cup.Only Ochoa of Mexico has more saves(14).He needs to be sharp against the French forwards for the Denmark vs France clash.[spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]Denmark’s last victory against a European side in he world cup finals came against France in 2002.[spacer height=”30px”]

 Starting XI for Denmark vs France : [spacer height=”30px”]

Kasper Schmeichel, Henrik Dalsgaard, Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen, Jens Stryger Larsen, Lasse Schone, Thomas Delaney, Christian Eriksen, Andreas Cornelius, Martin Braithwaite, Nicolai Jorgensen.[spacer height=”30px”]

 

[spacer height=”30px”]France[spacer height=”30px”]

France with two victories are top of the group and would like to finish on top which means they would face either of Nigeria/Argentina/Iceland in the Last 16.[spacer height=”30px”]

The like of Pogba and Kante have been instrumental in both the victories. Deschamps brought Giroud and Matuidi in place of Dembele and Tolisso in the last match which they won 2-1. He is expected to field a much altered lineup today as well and it will be a litmus test to French coiffeurs. [spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]In French, fringe players are known as coiffeurs because their ultimate aim is to coiffer (‘take’) the place of the first-choice players.[spacer height=”30px”]

Didier Deschamps has been blessed with a plethora of options in coiffers who have been waiting for the first team chance and he might seem to suffice them with a chance against Denmark.[spacer height=”30px”]

Players to watch out for in Denmark vs France :[spacer height=”30px”]

Kylian Mbappe[spacer height=”30px”]

The youngster became the youngest goal scorer for France in the world cup by netting a goal against Peru.He would be looking to add to his tally which might also see him the youngest player to score in multiple worldcup games.[spacer height=”30px”]

Ngolo Kante[spacer height=”30px”]

The Defensive Midfielder has been the linchpin for France providing a stable partnership with Pogba in the midfield. He has recovered the ball 27 times in both the matches whenever Pogba or Matuidi loses the ball in the field.[spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]He has been the one giving time and ball the forward to move up the lines. He made 7 tackles and 6 interceptions in the two games and has an accuracy of 95%. His team will look to him immensely in order to have that necessary stabilizing impact that Kante so easily provides for the Denmark vs France clash. [spacer height=”30px”]

Giroud has scored the last three goals in Denmark vs France clashes prior to this.[spacer height=”30px”]

 Starting XI for Denmark vs France :[spacer height=”30px”]

Mandanda, Benjamin Sidibe, Raphael Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez, Steven Nzonzi, Ngolo Kante, Osuman Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Lemar, Oliviour Giroud.[spacer height=”30px”]

Prediction for Denmark vs France :[spacer height=”30px”]

With France going for much changes and a minor reshuffle on cards for Denmark means both the teams will pose some new legs in this match.[spacer height=”30px”]

France would be looking to make a statement whereas the Danes would not want to leave their fate clinging on the result of the other match. Prediction is that both the teams have to settle for a draw 1-1 which will see Denmark qualify and France retain their top position after the Denmark vs France clash. [spacer height=”30px”]
