France breaks the curse of the champion of the World-wide! 'Them bleus' will be in the eighth of final and put point to final to a 'tradition' of the winners of the past edition, that had remained in the last years in phase of groups. With a conclusive victory in front of Denmark, in which the French deserved a lot of more, the ones of Didier Deschamps shake the pressure and confirm that they are candidates to revalidate the title that won in 2018.

Against Australia had left good feelings and an ideal result (1-4), but against Denmark have signed a big party in which Antoine Griezmann was the lighthouse and guide of the team, as already it had been it four years ago in Russia. 'The principito' dressed of leader and showed his best version to organise to the French and, especially, to Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé.

Denmark, that knows what is to compete and win him to France (already happened in the Nations League, with a 'bathroom' total) was desinflándose with the happen of the minutes, in the first-half, in front of a pressure asfixiante of 'them bleus', that recovered the very fast balloon and that had two players that 'swept' any type of danger near of the area of Lloris largely of the party: Dayot Upamecano and Aurelién Tchouaméni.

The French showed very orderly, precise and inteligrentes, with a big quantity of occasions directed by Kylian Mbappé, Ousmane Dembélé and Olivier Giroud. The forward of the Paris Saint-Germain was being indescifrable for the rival defence, but did not go until the second half that could move the marker: To the hour of party, a 'jugadón' of the French finish in goal of 'Donatello', after Theo Hernández went in speed, apurara on line background and expected to yield to backwards in front of the apparition of Mbappé, that surpassed to Schmeichel to put the 1-0.

The joy did not last a lot... But it is Mbappé

With the goal of the of Bondy, the champion of the world in 2018 stepped backwards and Denmark took advantage of to try approach to the area of Lloris. The plan went out them to perfection, because so alone six minutes after Mbappé opened the tin, Andreas Christensen commissioned sign the tables in a played to unemployed balloon. The central of the FC Barcelona elevated more than anybody to the exit of a corner to finish without mercy and put the 1-1 in the electronic in the first finish to door of the Danish.

There it did not finish the pressure, because Denmark did not renounce to the possibility to carry the party and forced to 'work' of more to Lloris, that finish signing a paradón to avoid the 1-2 in the 71', when the balloon arrived to Lindstrom on the point penalti, but finished to the centre of the goal for the arrival of the guardameta of the Tottenham.

France tried to react with several approximations to the area, but without luck: a head butt of Tchouaméni or a Chilean of Rabiot, but was Kylian Mbappé the one who certified the classification of his to eighth: In the 85', rode Eat, left to Griezmann and this put it to him in the second stick to Mbappé so that, with the thigh, nailed the balloon in the deepest of the network of Schmeichel.
