Deschamps’ men fly to the round of 16

Second consecutive victory for defending world champion France. The blues won 2-1 over Denmark, thanks to a double by Kylian Mbappé.

Little happens in the first half. A few spurts by the French number 10, a few traps created by Cornelius for Denmark and little else. Pleasant rhythms but no major chances, with the Danish defense managing to rebound all France’s shots.

It all happens in the second half: in the 61st great tandem action between Mbappé and Theo Hernandez who, once he gets to the back, finds the Paris Saint-Germain player who cannot miss in the middle of the area. After only seven minutes Kasper Hjulmand’s men equalize thanks to a framed shot by redshirt defender Andreas Christensen. The match is decided in the 86th, thanks to a goal by the usual Mbappé, who collects Griezmann’s perfect cross.

Deschamps’ men won the second game, clinching, with one round in advance, passage to the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar.
