France vs Denmark Football Match Score 25 Sept 2022

Les Bleus faithful can breathe an early sigh of relief knowing that their side have not lost away from home in any tournament since June 2019, but they were defeated 2-1 by Denmark three months ago, with the absent Andreas Cornelius bagging a brace. Denmark did not pick up any fresh injury concerns in the midweek defeat to Croatia, where in-demand playmaker Jesper Lindstrom was forced to miss out due to illness, but Hjulmand is confident that the Eintracht Frankfurt man will be available here. Martin Braithwaite was given the nod to lead the line against Croatia but lasted just 59 minutes of that match, and Kasper Dolberg will therefore have a glint in his eyes for the visit of France. Mikkel Damsgaard and Rasmus Kristensen are among Hjulmand’s options for change in the wide areas amid the quick turnaround, while Eriksen will go in search of his 40th goal for the national team.

In Denmark, the presence of Christian Eriksen stands out. The 30-year-old midfielder who plays for Manchester United is one of the main figures of the Danish team; his experience and quality make him the most dangerous and active man. In addition, he scored in the last match against Croatia but did not avoid the defeat. The reigning champions will not be able to defend the UEFA Nations League title, as they no longer have a chance to qualify for the Playoffs for the title, and could even be relegated to League B, although it depends on themselves. They have won only one of the last four matches they have played and it was precisely the most recent one against Austria, the team with which they are playing for relegation.

The Danish National Team after qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has won three matches in this UEFA Nations League with two victories over Austria and a win over France, while they lost twice against Croatia. They are currently second in the group with 9 points, are assured of retaining their place in the group and with a win they could qualify for the Playoffs, although it depends on what the Croatians do. There have been 17 meetings between Denmark and France, with the French team winning on eight occasions, while Denmark has won on seven occasions. The other two duels ended in a draw.

However, there is just the one point in it, and Denmark know that anything besides victory over Les Bleus will consign them to a second-placed finish – a draw would not be enough as Croatia lead the way on head-to-head points. Even if the Danes were to produce a seismic shock against France, their fate will be sealed if Croatia overcome basement side Austria this weekend, but Hjulmand’s side can boast the honour of being the top scorers in League A Group 1 with seven strikes to their name. The Finals dream may not materialise for Denmark, but firmly establishing themselves as League A contenders marks another significant progression for the Red and Whites, who will do battle with France in their World Cup group two months after Sunday’s game.

In what will be the final international window before the Qatar 2022 World Cup, there’s plenty at stake for several sides looking for strong form – while for others, it is simply a matter of ensuring they finish on a high note. GOAL brings you details on how to watch the game on TV in the U.S. and India as well as how to stream it live online. With a World Cup defence looming in Qatar, it has been less than ideal preparation for Les Bleus after a frustrating Euro 2020 campaign, falling shy of the Nations League finals. But Didier Deschamp will have relished the chance to fine-tune his selections here, and will hope his side can sign off on a high note.

Even if the results don’t fall the way of Denmark, this campaign will still be seen as a step forward for them, and there is also the small matter of them re-engaging with the French again in two months’ time in Qatar. A good result here, even if it doesn’t take them to the Nations League finals, will be a massive confidence booster. Off-the-field issues have made this a difficult campaign for the French and rather than defending their Nations League title, they find themselves battling to stay in League A.

Prior to the international break, Didier Deschamps’ squad had already been badly affected by injuries to key players but despite more niggling injuries being picked up in Thursday’s game with Austria, they emerged with a vital 2-0 win – goals from Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud. Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark are no longer in control of their own destiny in Group A1 in the aftermath of a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Croatia on their last outing, which may well end up costing them a place in the finals.
