France vs. Denmark final score, recap: Both teams advance on 2018 World Cup's first scoreless draw

France and Denmark played out a 0-0 draw at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday to round out Group C play, giving each a beneficial point. With the point, France wins Group C with seven points, while the point for the Danes clinched a spot in the next round as the runner-up of the group. 

France had more chances, including six shots on target, but both teams looked content with controlling the ball as much as they could, playing long balls deep and not really going forward with heavy numbers in attack.

Didier Deschamps began the game with many key players on the bench, including Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Hugo Lloris, and he made some changes in the second half to hold on to the draw. 

As a result, France will play on Saturday at 10 a.m. ET against the second-place team of Group D, which will likely be Nigeria, Argentina or Iceland. Denmark will play on Sunday, with its most likely opponent being Croatia.
