2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ - News - Preview: Denmark v France

Didier Deschamps' side dominated possession but struggled to create any clear-cut chances against a determined Denmark, who will likely meet Croatia for a place in the quarter-finals.

"We will know how that's going on an ongoing basis". Both the teams are playing their last group match.

Versatile players are a boon to nations like Denmark, where the pool of talent might be such that you're overstocked with quality at certain positions and thinner at others.

Deschamps admitted he could rest players in danger of suspension, with midfield trio Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Corentin Tolisso all a booking away from missing the next match. But, speaking after Deschamps, Hareide said those remarks had been taken out of context and showered praise on both France and Pogba. "I won't be able to that after that".

The French, who have already secured their progression to the last 16, have also changed goalkeepers and handed a start to Steve Mandanda, replacing Tottenham's Hugo Lloris. "There are no risks, if they're here it's because they're ready to play". VIDEOS Thirty-six games in Russian Federation had failed to result in a goalless stalemate, but neither France nor Denmark ever looked like scoring in a tedious affair.

"Everyone is free to say what they want and accept responsibility".

Griezmann was eventually hooked for Fekir 22 minutes from time and will need to show more of his best in the knockout rounds.

Coach Åge Hareide said the Danes would go in search of victory, resisting the risky temptation to look to settle for a draw in the match, which kicks off at 4pm Danish time at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Title contenders France have yet to hit top gear in Russian Federation, churning out a 2-1 victory over Australia before scraping past Peru 1-0.

The light can come on at any time with the Atletico forward, but Tuesday at the Luzhniki was mostly darkness.

"You can pick anything from an article you like, but I was just comparing with the best version of France we have ever seen".

"In attack I think we can still progress, we can still hurt the opponent more", he added.
