Goal by Yusuf Poulsen leads Denmark to victory over Peru

Goal by Yusuf Poulsen leads Denmark to victory over Peru”

Despite Braithwaite's assertion that his team didn't play well enough on the night, they demonstrated enough to provide headaches for Bert van Marwijk and his Australian team.

With France firm favourites to top the group and already picking up their first points with a 2-1 win over Australia earlier on Saturday, both Peru and Denmark were desperate for victory to boost their chances of advancing to the playoffs.

The South Americans continued to attack in the second half and almost opened the scoring in the 57th minute but Andre Carrillo and Edison Flores missed chances in a goalmouth scramble.

Denmark settled into the game after the interval and the talismanic Christian Eriksen provided Poulsen with a chance to turn his evening around in the 59th minute, and the 24-year-old made no mistake.

Up till that moment, Peru had been in the ascendancy and bar the goal that is how Peru played the game.

Peru veteran Paolo Guerrero, who made it to Russian Federation only after a late reprieve for a drug ban, came on for the final 30 minutes, but his efforts at the Mordovia Arena came to no avail.

"At half-time we told him that he had to keep playing strong", Gareca told reporters.

With Peru constantly pushing on the Denmark defence, Åge Hareide would have been relying on William Kwist to help sit back while his fellow midfielders pushed further forward in attack.

In the 43rd minute, Edison Flores went down in the penalty area under a challenge from Yussuf Poulsen though referee Bakary Gassama did not deem it a foul initially.

Though Cueva missed the resulting penalty, VAR ensured one was given in the first place, another point in favour of the system.

The president, who very rarely says sorry, did not demand an apology - even though other aides said Sadler should. The White House then cut down the size of communications meetings, aides said. "And they should be fired".

The referee pointed to the spot upon reviewing video footage and Cueva blazed over, much to the dismay of Peru's sizable travelling support.

What an journey Peru fans have been on to see their country at the World Cup, after a 36-year absence.

"They got very little out of this game, they probably deserved more, but that´s football".
