Christian Eriksen-Inspired Denmark Out To Spoil Peru's World Cup Return

Eriksen-inspired Denmark out to spoil Peru's World Cup return

With France, one of the pre-tournament favourites, also in Group C, Peru can not afford to drop points against Denmark if they are to progress to the knockouts on their return to the global stage after a 36-year absence.

The mere presence of striker Paolo Guerrero on Peru's national team could have been a big distraction.

"But we also have players at that level. This team has been playing together well (without him)", he said. They last won a World Cup match against Iran in 1978 when they got better of their Asian rivals 4-1.

They may have been lucky to reach Russian Federation but their performance against Denmark will have encouraged their travelling fans and they will still be hopeful of qualifying for the last 16, although they need to take their chances against France on Thursday.

For the second time on Saturday - and the second time in this World Cup - a penalty was awarded after a VAR consultation.

When they qualified for the tournament, the exuberant crowd celebrations that greeted Farfan's opening goal in the play-off win over New Zealand in Lima produced enough seismic activity to trigger quake detection alarms in Peru's capital city. "He's a very strong player with a strong character and mindset".

Any Peruvian success in Russian Federation might have been tainted if opponents made a fuss that Guerrero, Peru's all-time leading scorer, had no business playing in the World Cup after failing a drug test a year ago.

Peru will take on Denmark in a Group C match which will be their first FIFA World Cup encounter after a gap of 36 years at the Mordovia Arena here on Saturday.

Golovkin vs. Canelo rematch happening
There is no fight ", De La Hoya told ESPN shortly after the deadline passed. "This is the fight Gennady wanted", Loeffler said. De La Hoya eventually increased Golovkin's share to 40 percent, but GGG continued to stand firm on parity. "No fight.

Orlando City's Yoshimar Yotun lashed the ball into Schmeichel's midriff from 25 yards as Peru made a positive, energetic start to the game and Edison Flores lifted a powerful shot over the crossbar from just outside the box. Denmark coach Age Hareide is likely to adopt a 4-3-3 formation, continuing the formula used in his team's 5-1 thrashing of Ireland last November. Cueva will now have another shot at correcting his mistakes and put his side ahead in the clash.

In fact, since booking their place in Russia, Denmark have yet to concede a goal.

Peru captain Paolo Guerrero has been named on the bench for the South Americans' World Cup opener against Denmark in Group C. Peru 0, Denmark 0.

But Gareca said: "We know they are taller".

FIFA World Cup 2018 Peru v/s Denmark will be broadcast on Sony Ten 2, Sony Ten 2 HD, Sony ESPN, Sony ESPN HD in English Commentary and Sony Ten 3 and Sony 3 HD in Hindi Commentary. The clash between Peru and Denmark will mark the second game of the Group.

- Denmark have reached the knockout stages in three of their four previous World Cup appearances but never progressed past the quarter-finals (1998).

Hareide drew parallels between Gareca's side and his own, having watched them draw 0-0 with Sweden in their final warm-up game. Jio TV and Airtel TV apps also have the rights to broadcast the match in India.
