The French team seeks to secure their pass to the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup this Saturday, but they are forced to beat Denmark. The duel is very rough for ‘Les Bleus’ and Kylian Mbappé suffered from the rival brand when he led a dangerous attack: Andreas Christensen stopped him with a pull.
The match on the pitch at Stadium 974 in Doha lasted more than 19 minutes (0-0), and the Danish team was located in the opponent’s field, combining passes to create spaces. However, there was a loss and those led by coach Didier Deschamps began a counterattack, taking advantage of the speed of ‘Kiki’.
Antoine Griezmann, with a great outlook, filtered a low assist for Mbappé, who was already running to take possession of the ball. Kylian had taken advantage to go one-on-one against goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but was unable to progress due to the appearance of Andreas Christensen, who grabbed him around the waist.
The milestone of the Denmark defender was evident and the squad of the French team requested a red card. Despite the claims, the Polish referee Szymon Marciniak stated that it was not the last man, which is why he only penalized with a yellow card.
With this partial tie, France remains as the leader of Group D of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, adding four points; followed by Australia, which has three; Denmark, with two; and Tunisia, with only one unit. On the last date, to ensure qualification to the round of 16, the last world champion will face the Tunisian team, on November 30, at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.
