HIGHLIGHTS: 

# Referee blows the full time whistle as Denmark wins the match 1-0 due to a Yussuf Poulsen goal! FT: DENMARK 1-0 Peru!

# 90+4" A cross from a corner kick by Peru is too strong and the ball goes well out of play.

# 90+4" Yoshimar Yotun (Peru) whips a promising cross into the box, but the opposition's defence intercepts the ball. Peru win a corner.

# 90+3" Poor challenge! Yussuf Poulsen (Denmark) is penalised for tripping and Bakary Gassama blows his whistle and takes out the yellow card!

# 90+2" Christian Eriksen (Denmark) takes the corner with a short pass.

# 90+2" Decent spell from Denmark here and they keep the pressure on until one of the defending players steps in. Good work from Denmark as they win a corner.

# 90+1" Andre Carrillo (Peru) plays in a hopeful cross, but it doesn't find its way to any of the attacking players. The ball is off of the pitch and it's a goal kick for Denmark.

# 5 minutes of added time!

# 90" Andre Carrillo (Peru) plays in a hopeful cross, but it doesn't find its way to any of the attacking players. The ball is off of the pitch and it's a goal kick for Denmark.

# 90" Andre Carrillo (Peru) goes on a solo run, but he fails to create a chance as an opposition player blocks him.

# 89" Raul Ruidiaz (Peru) handles the ball inside the penalty area.

# 87" The manager makes a subsitution with Pedro Jesus Aquino Sanchez (Peru) coming on for Renato Tapia.

# 86"A great chance! Christian Eriksen (Denmark) collects a great pass inside the box, but the goalkeeper does well to stop his effort.

# 85" It's time for a substitution. Raul Ruidiaz (Peru) comes on in place of Jefferson Farfan.

# 84" SAVE! Jefferson Farfan (Peru) receives a precise low pass inside the box, controls the ball and drills it to the middle of the goal, but Kasper Schmeichel makes a comfortable save to stop his effort.

# 83" CHANCE! Nicolai Jorgensen (Denmark) is first to the rebound but his shot is blocked. Wow, what an escape there for the opposition.

# 81" Age Hareide is forced to make an unplanned substitution as Andreas Christensen suffers an injury and Mathias Jorgensen (Denmark) comes on.

# 78" CLOSE! Paolo Guerrero (Peru) receives a precise pass inside the box and back heels it just wide of the right post.

# 75" Renato Tapia (Peru) seems to be alright and is okay to carry on.

# 75" Renato Tapia (Peru) is clearly asking for some medical attention with his painful gestures. The extent of his injury is yet to be discovered.

# 74" Christian Eriksen (Denmark) steps up to take the corner, but the ball just sails in among the defenders.

# 73" Christian Eriksen (Denmark) floats the ball in from the corner but it's intercepted. Now Denmark have a corner.

# 73" A defence-splitting pass is taken in his stride by Luis Advincula (Peru) in the box. Without even looking up he drills a shot towards the right side of the goal, but Kasper Schmeichel pulls off a brilliant save.

# 71" Henrik Dalsgaard (Denmark) should know this behaviour is beyond the rules. He was too careless with his challenge and left Bakary Gassama no option but to blow his whistle.

# 71" Andre Carrillo (Peru) sends a chip pass into the box, but Kasper Schmeichel is quickest to intercept the ball.

# 70" CHANCE! What an opportunity! Alberto Rodriguez (Peru) squanders a huge opportunity as he latches on to a perfect cross from the wing. He produces a bullet header from around the penalty spot which goes just wide of the left post!

# 69" Paolo Guerrero (Peru) whips in the resulting set piece but it's cleared.

# 68" Thomas Delaney (Denmark) is obviously not following the Golden Rule: „Treat others as you want to be treated.“ He makes a bad challenge and leaves Bakary Gassama with no other option than to blow for a foul. Free kick. Peru will probably just try to cross the ball in from here.

# 67" Substitution. Pione Sisto is replaced by Martin Braithwaite (Denmark).

# 66" Pione Sisto (Denmark) sends a long ball forward to Yussuf Poulsen, but he put too much power and the chance is gone.

# 64" Paolo Guerrero (Peru) looks very eager to impress, does well to beat his man and force a cross into the box, where one of his teammates gets his head on the ball, but it's too easy for the keeper. (in this sentence the player crosses and heads his own cross!! So I created a different scenario).

# 63" One of the players from Peru times his run too early and the referee blows his whistle for offside.

# 62" The referee signals a substitution. Paolo Guerrero (Peru) is brought on as a substitute for Edison Flores.

# 55" Yussuf Poulsen (Denmark) is offside and the linesman raises his flag.

# 47" Henrik Dalsgaard (Denmark) makes an overly-aggressive challenge and Bakary Gassama blows his whistle for a foul.

# 45" The players are back out on the pitch following the half-time break and the second half is about to start.

Half Time! 

# 45+2" Yussuf Poulsen (Denmark) times his run into the box perfectly and slams a header goalwards from the centre of the box, but it lacks accuracy and flies well wide of the left post.

# 45+2" There's an opportunity for Christian Eriksen (Denmark) to deliver the ball into the box from a corner.

# 45+1" Denmark are passing the ball across the pitch and keep possession. However, an opponent intercepts a pass and the situation changes. Denmark get a corner.

# 45" MISS! Christian Cueva (Peru) doesn't keep his cool and fails to convert the penalty. He skies the ball way over the bar and into the stands.

# 44" Penalty to Peru! Christian Cueva (Peru) is going to take the penalty!

# 44" There's some confusion. Looks like the ref is going to review the penalty decision to Peru using VAR. Let's see what happens.

# 41" Thomas Delaney (Denmark) attempts to find Yussuf Poulsen, but puts far too much on the pass and the chance is gone. The ball is off of the pitch and it's a goal kick for Peru.

# 40" The foul by Jefferson Farfan (Peru) was seen by Bakary Gassama who didn't hesitate to blow the whistle.

# 40" Pedro Gallese earns applause from the crowd! He dives superbly to deny a dangerous first-time effort from the edge of the box. Lasse Schone (Denmark) was the player who tested the keeper's reflexes. Nice goalkeeping skills, indeed.

# 29" CHANCE! Jefferson Farfan (Peru) misses a good chance to score. An inch-perfect cross into the box finds Jefferson Farfan (Peru) who rises for a header, but sends the ball well over the bar. The ball is out of play and the linesman points at the corner flag. Corner to Peru.

# 27" Jefferson Farfan (Peru) commits a foul and Bakary Gassama immediately signals a free kick.
