Denmark hold on to deny Peru in Group C thriller

  • Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen

During his legal battle, Guerrero received support from the captains of Peru's three Group C rivals, all of whom signed a letter asking Federation Internationale de Football Association to overturn his suspension.

Peru finished with 17 attempts to Denmark's 10, and numerous team's shots were of the point-blank variety, forcing Schmeichel to dive or extend whatever limb he could in the ball's path.

Here's how you can watch the match and more.

With an exciting attack consisting of Andre Carrillo, Christian Cueva, Edison Flores and Jefferson Farfan, Peru were a constant danger to the Danish defence, stretching Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer.

Both the conservative and compromise bills would provide money for Trump's long-sought border wall with Mexico. She called the Trump administration's separation policy " barbaric ", adding: "It has to stop".

The Norweigan was indebted to both Christian Cueva's missed penalty and some heroics from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to keep a clean sheet as Yussuf Poulsen's second-half finish proved enough.

With Peru constantly pushing on the Denmark defence, Åge Hareide would have been relying on William Kwist to help sit back while his fellow midfielders pushed further forward in attack.

There are no easy games in South American World Cup qualification, and Los Incas outscored the likes of Argentina, Colombia and Chile to get here.

NCAA approves 4-game redshirt rule for college football
Historically, players who wish to transfer have been blocked from going to any school that's on a future schedule. Previously a player would lose his redshirt status after taking the field for a single play.

Peru, who left out all-time top-scorer Paolo Guerrero from their starting lineup, were awarded a penalty after consultation with the video assistant referee for Poulsen's foul.

Three short replayed angles followed, quicker than the minutes people threatened it would take to look at VAR, and Gassama decided he was wrong and rightly pointed to the spot.

Peru and Denmark have largely cancelled each other out over the first half at the Mordovia Arena.

Denmark also reached Russian Federation via the play-offs, beating the Republic of Ireland.
