Dembele and Kounde qualify for World Cup playoffs, Christensen scores: how Barca players fared in France vs Denmark
7

The World Cup round two encounter between France and Denmark ended in a 2-1 win for the reigning champions.

3 Barca players were involved in the game.

🇫🇷 Ousmane Dembele. The Frenchman was arguably France’s main threat even though it’s Mbappe who bagged a brace. In the first half alone, he made 3 key passes and completed 2 crosses and one dribble. He also won 3 duels, helping his team defend. He was subbed off in the 75th minute.

🇫🇷 Jules Kounde. He played the whole game, being one of the most involved France players with 75 touches. With 2 clearances, 2 interceptions and one successful tackle, Kounde helped his country hold Denmark to just one goal.

🇩🇰 Andreas Christensen. He scored Denmark’s only goal in this game — a fine header past Hugo Lloris. He spent lots of time with the ball, misplacing just 4 passes out of 72. 

With two wins in two outings, France is the first country to qualify for the round of 16.

Denmark will only progress if they manage to beat Australia on November 30.
