FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Score, Denmark vs Peru Live Streaming

If we want to secure the second spot then we need to win against Peru.

Kasper Schmeichel - son of former Manchester United goalkeeping legend Peter - was showered with praise after his acrobatic display helped earn Denmark a 1-0 over Peru on Saturday to get their World Cup off to a flying start.

With 11 minutes left, Guerrero almost scored one of the goals of the early stages of this tournament with the Flamengo forward sending a back-heel towards the far bottom corner from 10 yards, only to watch on as the ball went agonisingly wide with Schmeichel beaten.

And given the format of the World Cup, which sees Denmark up against Australia in just five days' time, the midfielder may find himself missing out on part of his country's journey depending on the severity of his rib injury. "It is these moments as a player that you live for".

"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". Peru and Denmark have set new national records by going 15 games unbeaten, and will be buoyed by the presence of their key men - Peruvian captain Paolo Guerrero and in-form Danish star Christian Eriksen.

Peru promptly countered when Carrillo's weighted pass put Farfan through on goal and Simon Kjaer had to rush across to dispossess the striker.

Another chance was squandered soon afterwards when Farfan was teed up on the penalty spot but despite making a clean connection with his shot, Schmeichel managed to stick out a leg to keep the ball out.

Braithwaite, who was loaned out to French club Bordeaux after an underwhelming start to his career in English football with Middlesborough, conceded he didn't know much about the Australian team.

However, he said he had been impressed while watching the Socceroos' narrow defeat to France earlier in the day.

"I have nothing to say to my players".

"If we win that one it looks good to qualify from the group, so we are already concentrated about playing a good game against Australia and win".
