Denmark need to bag a victory against France in order to move into the next round.

Despite Denmark midfielder William Kvist's return to Russian Federation after two broken ribs and a punctured lung following a hard collision against Peru, he will not be in contention for a place in the game that the Danes could qualify with even with a loss, if Australia do not win their match.

The Socceroos take on Peru in their final group match, knowing they need to win and hope France can topple Denmark to get into the round of 16.

"I know one point will be enough but that's not a good way to start the match", he said. One point will be enough to progress to the next stage but Hareide will also be keen to see Denmark improve their possession-based football in the final third of the pitch.

Even if the mood has totally changed in the French camp since Les Bleus qualified for the next round by beating Peru, coach Didier Deschamps was very clear: he wants to finish top of the group, no matter who they'll play against. Both sides have struggled to score all tournament and I think that trend will continue.

"You can pick anything from an article you like, but I was just comparing with the best version of France we have ever seen".

Denmark were lucky to win against Peru but were unlucky not to win against Australia. There's teams who are out, teams who are already through, and teams scrapping for their World Cup lives, and this can lead to some very interesting fixtures - such as this show-down between Denmark and France. 1998 champions France have a wealth of attacking depth available to them, and already find themselves over the line as far as last 16 qualification goes. France went on to win three of those five previous tournaments.

Denmark would qualify regardless of how they fare against France if Australia fail to beat Peru in the other Group C match in Sochi.

We're getting to the stage in the tournament now where team's fortunes can widely vary. "Hopefully, at one point in this World Cup, we will find in our best form".

Where is the Denmark vs France match?

The only other country to have played Nigeria in the FIFA World Cup Round of 16, Italy (USA 1994) did not make it to the finals in Russian Federation. Now France will look to defeat Denmark too so as to remain unbeaten till the end of first round.
