France and Denmark will battle it out for the top spot in Group C of the 2018 FIFA World Cup when they lock horns against each other at the Luzhniki Stadium on 26th June. France has looked in perfect shape with most of its top guns in good form. Denmark will potentially be strongest challengers for them in the group stage, and they’d like to end up on a positive note against them before entering the knockouts. Denmark’s 12-match unbeaten streak speaks a different tale of though. The likes of Simon Kjer, Christian Eriksen, and Yussuf Poulson have brought Denmark on par with all the top teams around the globe, and they will ensure the passage doesn’t become an easy one for Les Blues.
It will be the last chance for France to get in the groove before the knockouts. The equivalence of skills in all four teams in group C might make this game a do-or-die game for either side as well. Which means, it well might be the last game for Denmark or France or both of them depending on how their campaign pans out. That said, no fan would dare to miss out on this intense encounter.

Here are the twenty-two players who will have the hopes of millions of fans pinned on them come 26th June.
Alphonse Areola, Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda; Lucas Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Benjamin Mendy, Benjamin Pavard, Adil Rami, Djibril Sidibe, Samuel Umtiti, Raphael Varane; N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Steven N’Zonzi, Paul Pogba, Corentin Tolisso, Ousmane Dembele, Nabil Fekir; Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Lemar, Kylian Mbappe, Florian Thauvin.

France’s inconsistency has been more or less credited to their playing XI. Didier Deschamps has been at the centre of criticism when his sides fail to bring in the positive results. Denmark’s stability will undoubtedly pose some strong challenges to France and calling on one side will become difficult. Goals will be there with both teams mostly preferring an attacking mindset. Our final prediction thus calls in for a 2-2 draw.
