This one will decide who wins group C, and although France have little to play for in terms of qualification, their quality should shine through and see them over the line, despite what will be a valiant effort from Denmark.

"We know a point is enough to qualify but it is not a good idea to start the game to get a draw".

"Today we couldn't get a better start but we know we can play better. If you read the whole article, you would have seen I was comparing this team with the 1998 team", Hareide said.

Deschamps admitted he could rest players in danger of suspension, with midfield trio Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Corentin Tolisso all a booking away from missing the next match. "There are no risks, if they're here it's because they're ready to play".

Starting line-ups France (4-2-3-1): Steve Mandanda; Djibril Sidibe, Raphael Varane (capt), Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez; N'Golo Kante, Steven Nzonzi; Thomas Lemar, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann; Olivier Giroud.

Denmark have lost four of their last five World Cup games against fellow European nations, with the exception in that run being a 2-0 win against France in 2002.

With Yussuf Poulsen suspended and Pione Sisto having an indifferent World Cup so far, coach Age Hareide will be forced to reshuffle his attacking lineup as the Danes head into their last crucial Group C match against France.

We're getting to the stage in the tournament now where team's fortunes can widely vary.

Denmark's Christian Eriksen has scored 17 goals in his last 20 appearances for the national side. But I think after we won the first one we just really wanted to go into this game and win, to make it look even better than it does now. "I was at my best for the knockout stages", said Griezmann.

Meanwhile, Hareide said his pre-tournament critical remarks about Tuesday's opponents France were "taken out of context". Now France will look to defeat Denmark too so as to remain unbeaten till the end of first round.
