French forward Kylian Mbappe scored the only goal for France in the 34th minute of the match.
Denmark, which ended the match with Australia in a 1-1 draw earlier on Thursday, places second with four points.
That miss proved key as Mbappe's historic World Cup moment gave France a 34th-minute lead.

Buoyed by their vociferous supporters in the Ekaternburg Arena, Peru went in search of an equalizer - Pedro Aquino struck the crossbar in the 50th minute with a thunderous 35-yard effort which would have been a contender for goal of the tournament had it gone in.

Talking to the press ahead of the Group C game in Yekaterinburg, the most eastern city at this World Cup, Varane leapt to the defense of Mbappé, who faded after a strong start against Australia.

Giroud forced Deschamps into making a selection decision for this game after he had such an impact as a substitute in the 2-1 win against Australia.
On paper, a front three of Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann looks mouth-watering, but for it to work, you need to play the right opposition, maybe the kind that you can counter-attack against.
"It doesn't come only from the French defense", Deschamps said.
At 19 years and 183 days, Mbappe became the youngest player to score for France's national team on soccer's biggest stage. Peru also made two changes with captain Paolo Guerrero coming in alongside Pedro Aquino.
"France neutralized Guerrero to a single chance in the first half".
As good as Dembele is, Mbappe just seems to have the edge in terms of maturity.
Peru coach Ricardo Gareca put a fearless face on his team's premature World Cup exit, saying his side had left a positive image but that he was sorry for their huge army of travelling fans.
This momentum was not taken into the second period as Peru responded admirably, and although they did not cut open France again, they did unleash several decent efforts from long range in their search for an equaliser.
