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.
