Goal by Yusuf Poulsen leads Denmark to victory over Peru

Goal by Yusuf Poulsen leads Denmark to victory over Peru

Andre Carrillo surged towards the Denmark box in the 13th minute and cut inside to curl a low drive towards the bottom-left corner, only for Schmeichel to pull off a diving save.

Denmark and Peru provide an entertaining, emotional match and some goals, but neither can get the three points as a late Guerrero goal evens it. Peru 2, Denmark 2.

The worry is that if Eriksen fails to get into the game, Denmark have no plan B. If Peru can stop him they have some fine attacking players of their own, all wearing an absolutely wonderful shirt.

Denmark looked more assured after the restart.

"It was a really great atmosphere, it felt like a World Cup and there was a lot of passion".

And one of those instances came in Peru and Denmark's stalemate. Yet Cueva struck an terrible penalty, leaving the red-and-white clad Peru fans distraught.




Poulsen appeared to catch Edison Flores with his trailing leg, but play continued.

Kasper Schmeichel denied Jefferson Farfan brilliantly with six minutes to go as Ricardo Gareca's men gave a good account of themselves in their first World Cup match for 36 years, entertaining the hordes of South American fans who packed the Mordovia Arena. Denmark's Christian Eriksen is a star, but the team is less unsafe than usual due to the absence of Nicklas Bendtner, the second highest goal scorer in his country's history.

The last time the Leicester City goalkeeper conceded a goal for Denmark came in their 5-1 play-off win over the Republic of Ireland, in November 2017.

Peru was excellent throughout pulling the Danish defense out of shape, but ultimately failing to make it count when it mattered.

According to FIFA's official records, 43,583 tickets were sold to fans in Peru making them the eighth-most supported nation at the World Cup in Russian Federation - with one even reportedly putting 24kg so that he could apply for one of the special [easy-access extra-width] seats that are much easier to get.

The Danes face Australia next, in Samara on Thursday, but they face the blow of losing midfielder William Kvist for the rest of the tournament after he had to leave the Peru game early.
