Denmark are close to secure their place in the knock out stage of this year’s FIFA World Cup tournament, but before getting there, they must face up against France and snatch at least a point from them.
Collecting four points from their previous two games, the Danish Dynamite technically would just need a point to secure their place in the next round, but it might not be wise for them to play only for one point.
Knowing that Australia still have that small shot of catching up should they win their final group game against Peru, Denmark must not take any gamble and just give their all this Tuesday.
Head coach Age Hareide might also consider to make some changes on their attacking line up, following the absence of Yussuf Poulsen and simply their lack of sharpness in previous two games.
Facing a quality side like the French, Hariede must find the best method in getting his star man, Christian Eriksen, to be influential throughout the whole game.
Meanwhile, for Didier Deschamp’s side themselves, this final group game still means a lot for them as they’re gunning for that group winner status, regardless of which teams they will be facing.
France won’t just play for fun and giggles this Tuesday as Deschamp is eager to see his players giving their best shot against Denmark.
Probable starting line up:
Denmark: Kasper Schmeichel(g); Henrik Dalsgaard, Simon Kjaer, Andreas Christensen, Jens Stryger Larsen; Lasse Schone, Thomas Delaney, Christian Eriksen; Andreas Cornelius, Martin Braithwaite, Nicolai Jorgensen.
France: Hugo Lloris(g); Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez; Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kante, Corentin Tolisso; Nabil Fekir, Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Lemar
