Defending Champions France are the first side to qualify for the last 16 with a brace from Kylian Mbappe which propelled them past Denmark in a 2-1 victory on Saturday at Stadium 974.

Lucas Hernandez cuts back for Mbappe as he squeezed the ball past two defenders and Kasper Schmeichel to give France the lead in the 61st minute.

The goal took Mbappe to 30 goals for France, his 13th goal in 13 appearances for the Blues.

Danish centre-back Andreas Christensen had a say to give Denmark a quick response as he placed a header into the net beyond Hugo Lloris' reach.

France lead Group D with 6 points with Australia behind them with 3 points, and Denmark and Tunisia on 1 point each.
