The Luzhniki Stadium is ready for the final matchday in Group C of the World Cup (WC), and second-placed Denmark face off against a France side that has already sealed progression to the knockout phase. A draw will be enough for the Danes, though a win will see them finish top at France’s expense.
Denmark had a wonderful start against Australia in their previous match, but had to settle for a draw after a hotly contested VAR-awarded penalty. It was a decision captain and talisman Christian Eriksen referred to as “very irritating” after the match… though his exact words were decidedly stronger.
Encore? Twenty years ago, France won the 1998 WC on home soil, winning all matches in the group stage. To do so, Les Bleus beat Denmark 2-1, but there is also a thirst for vengeance, with Denmark being responsible for France’s elimination in 2002.
Denmark have good reason to go for a win, as finishing second would likely see them consigned to a last-16 match against a strong Croatia side set to win Group D.
Players to watch: He may have a big mouth, but Christian Eriksen has 13 goals (plus five assists) in his last 15 games for Denmark, and is the biggest danger to France.
After netting the winner against Peru, Kylian Mbappe became the youngest French player to score in a major international tournament.
