"We were up against one of the best counter-attacking teams in the world".

Denmark would qualify regardless of how they fare against France if Australia fail to beat Peru in the other Group C match in Sochi.

Denmark hit the Eagles 4-1 at the Stade de France in Paris in 1998, with the Nigerians failing to fully focus on the match but on a probable quarter -final match-up with Brazil, two years after the Nigeria U23 edged Brazil in the Olympics semi final in USA.

After topping Group C thanks to a tiresome draw, France are on track to face Argentina in the first knockout round if Lionel Messi can inspire his side to victory against Nigeria, who occupy second spot in Group D. Both the teams are playing their last group match.

"We will see who wins between Nigeria and Argentina, who we will be up against and then prepare accordingly", said the Chelsea midfielder.

Denmark - likely to face Croatia next - rarely threatened and appeared happy with a 0-0 draw that sends them into the knockout stages for the first time since 2002, with Tottenham star Christian Eriksen providing their greatest threat in front of goal.

Scoring against Argentina isn’t that hard , says Ahmed Musa

How the Trump administration's story on family separations changed
POTUS, Nielsen and others were not telling the truth when they previously claimed only Congress could stop family separation. Under a court settlement, the federal government can not hold the children for more than 20 days.

But with the Peruvians leading 2-0 before the hour in that game, the Moscow clash settled down to little more than a canter.

"At the end, when it 10 minutes left, of course, you're going to keep on your feet and just avoid in the air really unsafe things", Ericksen said. France have scored just three times in three games in Russian Federation, including a penalty and an own goal, and it was another disjointed display from one of the title favourites.

"We didn't need to take any risk given that they wanted this result", France coach Didier Deschamps said. Can Kylian Mbappe - who became the first teenager to score for France at a World Cup with his strike against Peru - join this rarefied list, by netting against the Danes?

Yussuf Poulsen was suspended against France after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament against Australia.

Deschamps was satisfied with the draw as it meant top spot in Group C, but the French tactician admitted to TF1 that his team's momentum suffered as he made six changes to get more squad members a chance to play.
