France and Denmark progress after World Cup's first scoreless draw

France and Denmark progress after World Cup's first scoreless draw

"I'm not sure I'll tell the players though". Both the teams are playing their last group match.

"I have 23 players, they can all have a role to play and start a match", Deschamps added.

France and Denmark will face off this week, and the victor of this game will walk off the field owning the top spot in Group C. France now sits in first with 6 points with two wins, while Denmark is in second with 4 points due to one win and one draw.

Who's going through? Let us know your prediction.

After topping Group C thanks to a boring draw, France are on track to face Argentina in the first knockout round if Lionel Messi can inspire his side to victory against Nigeria, who occupy second spot in Group D.

Raphael Varane looks likely to captain the side, with Steve Mandanda expected to start in goal ahead of regular skipper Hugo Lloris.

Vulnerable House Republican calls for Trump to fire Stephen Miller
But bowing to public pressure, the US President on Wednesday signed an executive order that reverses the separation policy. Today, we temporarily blocked accounts that shared this information until they deleted the Tweet that violated our rules.

European Union slaps revenge tariffs on USA as trade war erupts
The biggest exporters of cars to the USA are Canada and Mexico , followed by Japan and Germany. The commission formally adopted the new tariffs, allowing them to come into effect on June 22.

New Zealand leader to spend 3rd night in hospital with baby
The name is derived from the Irish name Niamh , which means bright, radiant and snow, Arden told reporters at Auckland Hospital. Jacinda Ardern , who took New Zealand's top job in October, is only the second world leader to give birth while in office.

You can't blame Didier Deschamps for mixing things up.

Griezmann was eventually hooked for Fekir 22 minutes from time and will need to show more of his best in the knockout rounds. VIDEOS Thirty-six games in Russian Federation had failed to result in a goalless stalemate, but neither France nor Denmark ever looked like scoring in a tedious affair.

Four years ago, France were 2-0 winners at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha in Brasilia, kicking the Eagles out of Brazil 2014.

It is a very crucial match for Denmark as the result will decide the team's future in the FIFA World Cup 2018 tournament.

Denmark's Christian Eriksen has scored 17 goals in his last 20 appearances for the national side. Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has looked solid as part of a front three in the previous two group games and will have to be at his very best to shut out France and reach for the knockout stage for the first time since 2002.

The only other country to have played Nigeria in the FIFA World Cup Round of 16, Italy (USA 1994) did not make it to the finals in Russian Federation. There will be changes though and I still expect France to be too strong for Denmark.
