Knudsen Unused Sub as Denmark Win World Cup Opener
Saturday, 16th Jun 2018 20:00

Blues defender Jonas Knudsen was an unused sub as Denmark got their World Cup off to a winning start by beating Peru 1-0 in Saransk.

RB Leipzig's Yussuf Poulsen scored the winning goal in the second half, Christian Cueva, who plays his club football for São Paulo in Brazil, having missed a penalty for the Peruvians before the break.

Three-times-capped Knudsen, 25, wasn’t expected to start with Udinese's Jens Stryger Larsen having been a regular fixture at left-back.

Denmark are second in Group C with France having beaten Australia 2-1 in their game earlier today.

The Danes face the Australians on Thursday afternoon and the French on Tuesday 26th June.

Blues keeper Bartosz Bialkowski’s Poland play Senegal in their first Group H match on Tuesday evening.

Don't know why Ben Folami isn't in the Australia squad. They could have done with his pace in the last 20 minutes.
