Defending champions France get their second FIFA World Cup outing against Denmark in Doha Saturday. Didier Deschamps’ men were shaky at first before easing past Australia, 4-1. The Danes labored to a goalless draw with Tunisia but have a decent record against the French of late. Lucas Hernandez had to drop out of the tournament after his injury against the Socceroos, but goals are not a problem for the likes of Kylian Mbappe, and Olivier Giroud. The Danish need to find a few goals of their own and cannot afford to not hold France to at least a draw.
France take on Denmark in their second match in the 2022 World Cup at Stadium 974 on Saturday. Les Bleus started their campaign with a 4-1 thrashing of Australia, while Denmark recorded a goalless draw against Tunisia.
In the absence of Karim Benzema, Olivier Giroud has stepped up his game and scored two goals in the first match – one more against Denmark and he will be France’s all-time top international scorer. They are also aiming to win six games in a row at the World Cup – stretching back to Russia 2018 – which will be a first in their history.
Denmark, meanwhile, shouldn’t be daunted at the prospect of taking on the defending champions as they have won their last two encounters against France in the Nations League.
