Mbappe gives France victory
France finally broke through with fine attacking when Paris Saint-Germain star Kyliane Mbappe gave his team the lead in the 61st minute. The French forward swapped passes with Theo Hernandez down the left flank and placed the ball past Schmeichel for the first goal.
But that was quickly cancelled out by Denmark’s Andreas Christensen, who scored an equaliser just seven minutes later.
Not to be outdone, Mbappe then scored the winner in the 86th when he jumped acrobatically to guide in the second after a cross from Antoine Griezmann to make Les Bleus the first team to advance to the round of 16.
Mbappe scored four goals when France won the World Cup four years ago, including one in the final. He now has 31 goals for France, moving him one ahead of Just Fontaine — the all-time leading scorer at a single World Cup with 13 goals at the 1958 tournament.
“I’m very happy with the way my players have responded,” France Coach Didier Deschamps told broadcasters TF1. “We are sure to be qualified after two games. It brings peace of mind,” he said.
“We have a strong and solid group of players who want to do great things.”
Denmark defender Victor Nelsson said after the match: “Right now I’m very disappointed with the late goal. It is unacceptable to let in a goal so late in the game … We need to win over Australia on Wednesday.
The absence of Pogba, Kante and Benzema, the team is trying hard to ensure that they win the second Worldcup back to back.
