PER vs DEN Match Result - FIFA WC 2018
Peru
0 - 1
FT
Denmark
C. Cueva (PM) 45'+1'
59' Y. Poulsen
That was some staunch defending from Denmark right at the end to keep their lead and pick up the win! Peru tried and tried and tried, but Schmeichel was on the top of his game and was there to deny them every single time. Easily my choice for the man of the match award.

After the drama of last night, this was a much-needed game where two of the lesser known teams produced an epic encounter. Peru can go to the second game against France with their heads held high and can trouble the Blues if they play like they did today. Age Hareide's men will now hope to make it two in two when they take on Australia!

This is Amit Mishra signing off! See you when I see you!
90+5' Peeeeeeeeeeeep! Full time! Peru with a throw in! The last throw of the dice! Or not? The ref blows the whistle! Denmark with the win! What a dramatic finish to one helluva game! Who says only the big boys can play football, huh?
90+5' Schmeichel does brilliantly to thwart the corner! Denmark break but Jorgensen didn't have the pace or energy to break!
90+4' Corner to Peru! This is last-gasp stuff! Can they steal a draw?
90+4' Yellow card shown to Poulsen for dissent
90+3' They mess it up while trying to waste time and Peru instantly get the ball back and set up an attack...
90+2' Denmark managed to keep the ball on the left and win a throw in. Braithwaite does well to win a corner from the subsequent throw in...
90+1' And Cuevas nearly finds Guerrero with a pass from the left! That was hard to control and the Danes get a goalkick. Quite a few nervy Danish players out there...
Five minutes have been added on!
90' Jorgensen did well to hold the ball for a few seconds and waste a few precious seconds but Ramos wins it back to set Peru on the attack again. THEY ARE RELENTLESS! 
89' Peru were doing well there until Ruidiaz's handball put an end to the move. Amidst all the commotion, he replaced Farfan in the 85th minute. Jeez, this game is intense! 
88' Delaney was booked a few minutes earlier by the way for a foul on Yotun.
87' Substitution for Peru

Tapia is OFF
Aquino is ON
86' ERIKSEN'S SHOT IS SAVED! Good save by Gallese! hat was the chance to seal it! A nervy few minutes still left!
85' Schmeichel has made six saves already, tied for the most number of saves this World Cup so far. Some tournament for the keepers huh?
84' FARFAN WITH A SHOT! Saved on the line! What a run by Carillo to set up the former Schalke star! An unorthodox save by Schmeichel who's foot keeps Denmark in the lead! WOW!
83' Denmark now seeing a lot of the ball as Peru seem a bit jaded after those intense 30 odd minutes. Can they give it one final push?
82' WHAT A CHANCE FOR DENMARK TO SEAL IT! But Jorgensen is denied by Advincula! One hell of a block that. Brilliant pass by Eriksen to set it up! 
81' Substitution for Denmark

Christensen is OFF
Jorgensen is ON
80' Peru now use the long ball but Carillo is just offside! 10 minutes to go. Peru have given it their all!
78' Guerrero with a BACKHEEL attempt! Jeez, that would have been a World Cup goal to remember! Cueva again showed brilliant feet on the left to find the forward in the box who's first touch was out of the world. Just wide! Schmeichel wasn't getting there! 
77' Sisto's substitution has helped Peru on the right. Advincula is a lot more adventurous now on the right as he doesn't have to worry about the Celta man's pace anymore...
75' Play resumes and Peru are back on the ball. Enough time to level it up and go for the winner. The Danes have been under the cosh for a while now...
74' A brief stoppage in play as Tapia is down after taking a heavy blow from Kjaer. Looks nasty that. 
73' Corner to Denmark. Sweet play from Eriksen to win it, but his cross is woeful and fails to get past the first man. Another corner, though. 
72' Denmark have barely seen the ball in the last few minutes! Advincula manages a neat little flick to test Schmeichel, but it's saved quite easily. 
71' ANOTHER CHANCE FOR PERU! Carillo gets a brilliant cross into the box, but Poulsen, of all people, is there to deny Guerrero the tap in! Wow, this is intense. More of the same please!
69' DAMN! That was close! A smashing cross finds Rodriguez who's looping header to the far post isn't made use of by Farfan! Peru getting closer to the leveler!
68' Freekick for Peru as the ref didn't like Delaney's challenge on Tapia. A bit far off for a direct shot, but don't put it past Jotun...
67' Substitution for Denmark

Sisto is OFF
Braithwaite is ON
66' Some reprieve for the Danes as they ease the pressure with a move on the left. Eriksen's cross is a tad too much for Jorgensen, however...
65' Peru's press has become a lot more intense now as they go in search for the leveler. Eriksen perhaps needs to drop deeper to help out in terms of calming things in midfield...
63' Straight away, Guerrero gets a touch and nearly scores! Smartly controlled the ball in the box, passed it for Cueva and received a cross to head it straight into Schmeichel's  arms! This is quite end to end now...
62' Substitution for Peru: Paolo Guerrero, the all-time record scorer for Peru comes on for Flores.
61' WHAT A SAVE Schmeichel! Was that Kasper or Peter? Jeez, a strong left hand to deny Flores who had space on the left to pick the far right! This game has well and truly erupted!
And it all came from a Peru attack! Kjaer found Eriksen in acres of space down the midfield and you can't afford to do that with Eriksen! The man can pick a pass! Poulsen did well to keep himself onside and the finish with his left was sublime, as was the pass to him by Eriksen!
59' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! Poulsen! What a pass! What a finish!
58' It has been a fine second half so far, without the goal, albeit. Can sense the opening here...Peru breaking forward with pace...
57' FLORES! Just wide! Smashing bit of play by Cueva, the man who missed the penalty, to set up not one but two teammates on the right! Carrillo with an airshot first, then Flores with the wayward shot! Should make these count!
56' Brilliant switch in play initiated by Ramos to find Cueva. Peru keep it going in the attacking third, probing for an opening...
