(VIDEO)Watch: Goals and Extended Highlights:France 2-1 Denmark: Kylian Mbappe brace secures Knockout place for Les Bleus
France successfully inflicted revenge on Denmark for their two Nations League defeats in the summer, with a Kylian Mbappe brace securing three valuable World Cup points in a 2-1 victory over their European nemesis.
The victory puts France clear atop Group D with six points, and Les Bleus become the first nation at the 2022 World Cup to secure a knockout stage.
It was a resounding performance from France throughout, and Les Bleus were unlucky to reach halftime without securing the opener.
They finally managed to do so just past the hour mark, as Mbappe snuck a shot between two defenders and past an in-form Kasper Schmeichel to put France in front.
Denmark equalised shortly after against the run of play, with defender Andreas Christensen heading home past Hugo Lloris on a set-piece.
However they could not hang on amidst relentless French pressure, and Mbappe played hero yet again with his second goal just four minutes from time.
