Peru vs. Denmark - Football Match Report

Eriksen-inspired Denmark out to spoil Peru's World Cup return

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.

Denmark and Peru provide an entertaining, emotional match and some goals, but neither can get the three points as a late Guerrero goal evens it. Peru 2, Denmark 2.

Peru's biggest pre-World Cup storyline centered around Paolo Guerrero, who was originally suspended for 12 months, but the ban was reduced to six months by FIFA's appeal committee in December.

While Peru looked great on the ball, Ricardo Gareca's men came unstuck once in the final third.

Later, Schmeichel's kick save denied Jefferson Farfan's 83rd-minute, hard drive from near the top of the penalty area.

RB Leipzig's exciting winger, Poulsen was fortunate not to be punished for a clumsy tackle inside the box as Cueva missed the first-half penalty.

Trump credits his tweet in Rep. Sanford's defeat
Others have told us Trump's tweet was indispensable, driving additional turnout during the final critical afternoon rush. Sanford is in his second stint representing the 1st District, which includes the Lowcountry and the city of Charleston.

Edison Flores also tried his luck from distance, with an effort going well over the crossbar, before Andre Carrillo cut inside onto his left foot before forcing a solid intervention out of Schmeichel.

Peru almost broke through in the 13th minute when Carrillo executed a step-over dribble to cut to his left on the edge of the penalty area and unleash a low, hard left-footer.

Another chance was squandered soon afterwards when Farfan was teed up on the penalty spot but despite making a clean connection with his shot, Schmeichel managed to stick out a leg to keep the ball out.

The World Cup group stage continues on Saturday as Peru and Denmark face off.

The so-called Danish Dynamite had the better of possession but fewer scoring threats. Denmark's Christian Eriksen is a star, but the team is less unsafe than usual due to the absence of Nicklas Bendtner, the second highest goal scorer in his country's history.
