Denmark Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

All expect from Denmark to get out of the group stage but first they need to beat Peru in the first round. It will be a true test and a key battle for the second place. They play very well and like to play aggressive in attack and their main objective for the match against Peru is to score a goal more. Their last game in the group stage will be against favourites France, and for sure Denmark will try to reach knockout phase before this game.
