Denmark took advantage of some sloppy Peru finishing – including a missed penalty – to win their opening World Cup Group C clash 1-0.
Yussuf Poulsen got the decisive goal (59) but Peru only had themselves to blame as they squandered a plethora of chances, most notably when Christian Cueva blazed over a first-half penalty, which was awarded after a VAR review.
The disciplined Danes were also indebted to goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who made six saves and now hasn’t conceded a goal in international football for 534 minutes.
The result leaves Denmark joint-top of Group C with France, who beat Australia 2-1 earlier on Saturday.
