The teams of France and Denmark moved to the second round of the first and second of Group C, after Peru beat Australia in the closing match of the group stage of the 2018 World Cup and in turn they drew without goals.

The Gauls, who came to play with the Danes at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow and qualified for the next round, bet on the control of the ball, although without going deep, so much of the game was spent in the center of the field.

Neither Denmark demanded much from the French defense, who had control of the ball in 70 percent of the game time. The goalkeepers Kasper Schmeichel and Steve Mandanda were virtually silent witnesses of a kind of boring game missing clear goals.

A kind of gentlemen's agreement, in which they did not want to risk and put on the field players who had not had the opportunity to play in the previous matches and who ended up in a half-court duel.


Meanwhile, in Sochi, Peru was shattered the chances of the Australian team, winning 2-0, in a game in which the counterattacks were the most effective weapon of the South Americans.

Andrés Carrillo opened the scoring in the 18th minute, firing from the right side of the big area after receiving a pass from Paolo Guerrero, who became the leader of the Peruvian team throughout the match.

Guerrero had the opportunity to score his goal, in the 50th minute, when he received the ball in the center of the area and beat goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, who had no options or responsibility in any of the two goals received.

This way, Australia is waves goodbye, a team that would not have sufficed a victory, after the clear draw played by France and Denmark, and that could raise suspicion within the FIFA by the way it was played.
