France rotate heavily against Denmark, Australia leave Tim Cahill on bench

Mama said there'd be days like this - it's just the format of the competition.

Denmark hit the Eagles 4-1 at the Stade de France in Paris in 1998, with the Nigerians failing to fully focus on the match but on a probable quarter -final match-up with Brazil, two years after the Nigeria U23 edged Brazil in the Olympics semi final in USA. Peru and Australia have already been eliminated in that section. "Croatia will come out of Group D, so above all we have to avoid finishing second to avoid meeting them", said Tolisso, who started the first game against Australia.

"You need to do what you need to do but for the team this has been wonderful".

Jeers and whistles swirled around the frustrated crowd as both sides failed time after time to create any real opportunities, the Danes continuing to defend deep and the French rarely breaking out of a trot.

France rested a number of their regulars after clinching entry to the round of 16 last week. But it felt like the classic damp squib, end-of-group-game.

"First of all these were things taken out of context", Hareide said in Moscow on Monday. With four points, the Danes hold a three-point lead over the Socceroos, so a draw would be enough to secure advancement, while a win would give Denmark a first-place finish. This side is filled with talent and the players are gelling together well. To make it feel like a little less pressure against France in the last game. We will have all the latest news, and video highlights from the match in Moscow.

Varane believes there is much more to come from the team, particularly going forward.

Mandanda looked uncertain when Eriksen played a 55th-minute free kick into his penalty area but, after losing the ball, he then gathered it with Denmark forwards closing in. 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. It could be an option to revisit later in the tournament, depending on the opposition.

This allowed Denmark to put an extra passer in the middle of the park - Christensen is excellent on the ball - while inserting Mathias Jorgensen at the back alongside Simon Kjaer.
