GETTY ITVOlivier Giroud's hold-up play is important to the France team says Henrik Larsson

The team now sit in third in the group with one draw from two games, behind France with six points and Denmark with four.

Denmark are now plus one and Australia are minus one. They still need one point to go through to the knockout stage, but will have a tough job in hand as they face France, who are now leading the group with six points on the board.

"We just needed one point, right?", Hareide said. "We sacrificed everything to get the point and take us to the next level".

Denmark vs France was possibly the dullest game to have been played at the tournament so far, and nowhere was this reflected more than the scoreline. "We showed that Peru can play as equal to anyone".

"It wasn't the most exciting game because Denmark wanted a draw", said Deschamps.
