After their victory against Australia (4-1), the French team faces Denmark on the second day of the 2022 World Cup. Less armed on paper, the Danes are confident to overcome the Blues.
It’s the match for first place in this group D. On Saturday 27 November, at the 974 Rass Abou Aboud stadium, France and Denmark meet for a match at the pinnacle of European football. Held in check in the first match by Australia, the Danes no longer have the right to make mistakes and absolutely must beat the French team to hope to reach the knockout stages. Back to the wall, Denmark feels even stronger, as during the last Euro. At a press conference, Rød-Hvide assistant coach Morten Wieghorst spoke about his team’s chances of beating the Blues.
Denmark warns France before the clash
“If you look at the individualities of the France team, they have world-class players. Just look at their bench and how many good players are substitutes. Tactically we are flexible and we have a strong squad. We have players who can make a difference against any opponent. France have changed formation since our last meeting, they play a little differently, they have made changes. We’ll see if we trust each other to put in another good performance against them. We have assets to surprise the French” said the former Danish midfielder who faces France for the third time this year. In 2022, Denmark has already beaten the Blues twice, away and at home and therefore has the psychological advantage over Didier Deschamps’ training. Deprived of Benzema, Hernandez, Kimpembe or Nkunku, the Blues will have to be wary of a team from Denmark, capable of causing major problems for the French defense.
