France stepped ahead of everyone else in the FIFA World Cup knockouts. The defending champion, who won against Denmark by 2-1, created a record as the first team to reach the knockouts in this World Cup. France, who defeated Australia 4-1 in the last match, continued the same momentum in the match against Denmark. But Denmark also gave a tough competition. But as France star Kylian Mbappe exploded and scored two goals at the end, Denmark was doomed to defeat.
In the first half of this match, both the teams almost shared the possession of the ball. However, the French team attempted to score 13 times. At the same time, Denmark got a chance to score only twice. But both teams could not score. The first half ended 0-0. In the second half, the French team tried to increase the pressure on the opponent.
The French players tried to score several times after reaching Denmark’s goal post with nice passes. Their efforts finally paid off in the 61st minute. France took the lead with Mbappe’s goal. But Denmark soon recovered.
Within seven minutes of France’s goal, Denmark also scored and leveled the scores. But the match ends in a little while, Mbappe scored another goal in the 86th minute and won his team. With this, the French team was directly knocked out from this group. If Denmark beat Australia in their next match, they will have a chance to reach the knockouts.
