World Cup: Goalless Draw Sees Denmark Progress
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The first goalless draw of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia has seen Denmark progress to the Round of 16, joining today's opponents France - who top Group C ahead of the Danes.
With ten changes across the two sides, there was a certain lack of cohesion to each team's play. Christian Eriksen went closest for the Danes on two occasions, either side of the interval.
The first chance saw him denied by a combination of Steve Mandanda - the oldest French player to make his World Cup debut, aged 33 - and Lucas Hernandez. After the break, the No10 snatched at an opening after some nice build-up play, FIFA.com reported.
France, for their part, looked largely uninspired - even with their talisman Antoine Griezmann starting up front. Kylian Mbappe made a late cameo, but his introduction could not break the deadlock.
