June 26, 2018: Especially Dope 0-0

The 2018 World Cup, with confirmation of qualification for the round of 16, France faced Denmark on the last day of the group stage. For the occasion, Didier Deschamps left some of his CEOs like Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi or Kylian Mbappe to rest. Denmark, for its part, has yet to validate its ticket for the rest of the competition. To do this, he had first of all to avoid losing. Context leads to a psychedelic match in a nutshell. And, as some suspected at the time, the meeting was particularly inaccurate. Not full of energy, she produced a clean result with only five shots on target: two for the Reds and the Whites and three for the Blues. But both selections achieved their goal, with Denmark snatching second place in Group C, and France taking first place.
