Peru vs. Denmark - Football Match Report

Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen

The bulk of Peru's second half chances fell to Jefferson Farfan, and the best came in the 84th minute when he was found by a pulled-back pass in acres of space just 10 metres out.

The worry is that if Eriksen fails to get into the game, Denmark have no plan B. If Peru can stop him they have some fine attacking players of their own, all wearing an absolutely wonderful shirt.

The teams were level after an interesting first half in which Peru missed a penalty.

Cueva had the stadium on the verge of raptures until his spot-kick was sent in to orbit, while Paolo Guerrero - who was surprisingly left on the bench having been cleared to play in Russian Federation following a drugs ban - saw his clever backheel trickle agonisingly wide of the post.

It was a sublime save that secured all three points for Denmark from a game many observers feel they probably deserved to lose.

Now, Peru must hope they can break down France's defence next Thursday, or face an exit from the World Cup after two games.

"We were playing against a truly great team with very, very good players and the atmosphere in the stadium has nothing to do with what happened on the pitch".

His 29th cap for Denmark, the opener was just Poulsen's fifth and brought the first time he had scored in consecutive games for his country, after netting 2-0 friendly win over Mexico.

Peru are appearing at their first World Cup finals since 1982, and their fans have been out in force to contribute to the special atmosphere in Russian Federation so far this summer.

Peter Schmeichel's son Kasper wrote himself into Danish World Cup fokelore with a man of the match performance between the sticks as Denmark held on to beat a creative Peru side 1-0.

In the 43rd minute, Edison Flores went down in the penalty area under a challenge from Yussuf Poulsen though referee Bakary Gassama did not deem it a foul initially.

"The VAR system is there to make things fair, there has been a lot of discussion about the interruptions, but here it worked out well", added Hareide.
