In the last 16, France play Saturday in Kazan against the second-placed team from Group D, and Denmark take on the Group D victor the next day in Nizhny Novgorod.

The victor of Group C will take on the runner-up of Group D (Nigeria's section) in the Round of 16 in Kazan on Saturday 30th June, while the victor of Group D will play the runner-up of Group C in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday 1st July. France have scored just three times in three games in Russian Federation, including a penalty and an own goal, and it was another disjointed display from one of the title favourites.

In its first match of group play, Denmark handed Peru a 1-0 loss to pick up three points.

With Yussuf Poulsen suspended and Pione Sisto having an indifferent World Cup so far, coach Age Hareide will be forced to reshuffle his attacking lineup as the Danes head into their last crucial Group C match against France.

It was the flawless start to their campaign, making Japan the first Asian country to defeat a South American team at a World Cup. Princess Hisako of Takamada appeared at Mordovia Arena in Saransk , where Japan beat Colombia 2-1, and waved to spectators.

A game neither France nor Denmark needed to win produced the World Cup's first 0-0 draw amid boos and whistles from fans on Tuesday.

"We cannot be only focused on Christian but as I said he's got the key role in his team so we need to look after him". 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. A second yellow card before the semifinals triggers a one-game ban.

Ten minutes later, France full-back Lucas Hernandez had a better claim when Brentford's Henrik Dalsgaard got a lot of boot when he slid in to block a shot after a nice one-two with Oliver Giroud.

The second half was a slight improvement on the opening 45 minutes, with substitute Nabil Fekir finally showing some positivity. Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel clawed the shot wide and Ricci and VAR settled for the corner. The duo will be looking to impress and convince Deschamps for a start in the round of sixteen contest against a side from Group D. That could still be any of Croatia, Nigeria, Iceland or Argentina before their final games later Tuesday.
