Denmark 0-0 France: Five things we learned

Another day, another set of World Cup matches to be played as we count down to the big day where one country will lift the trophy. France has won each game by a goal, so they'll be looking for more offense from the men up front to secure a potential win. Events elsewhere in Group C made this game all but irrelevant. "We would have been stupid to open a lot of space for the French team".

In the end, both sides played out the first goalless draw of the tournament as they advance to the last 16 with Les Blues as group winners.

A second Peru goal against Australia in Sochi three minutes into the second half allowed the Danes to relax even more, and it quickly became clear that both teams were content to settle for the draw that would see their respective objectives achieved.

"We didn't need to take any risk given that they wanted this result", France coach Didier Deschamps said.

It was the longest a World Cup had gone without a goalless draw since 1954, which had none. The 0-0 that followed was the first scoreless draw of the World Cup - and we should probably be thankful that it comes after 36 games.

Steve Mandanda became France's oldest World Cup debutant and the goalkeeper nearly cost his side, spilling a long-range Eriksen free-kick before recovering to claim the loose ball ahead of lurking striker Andreas Cornelius.

Here are the possible line-ups for France in today's match.Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez, Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kante, Corentin Tolisso, Nabil Fekir, Antoine Griezmann and Thomas Lemar.

Yussuf Poulsen was suspended against France after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament against Australia.

"I do not want to speak about things personally, rather collectively", said the Sevilla midfielder. That could still be any of Croatia, Nigeria, Iceland or Argentina before their final games later on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).

The victor of Group C will take on the runner-up of Group D (Nigeria's section) in the Round of 16 in Kazan on Saturday 30th June, while the victor of Group D will play the runner-up of Group C in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday 1st July.
