Denmark's Poulsen turns from villain to hero , Latest Football News

A wave of momentum helped Peru mount a 15-game unbeaten streak and qualify for its first World Cup via the intercontinental playoffs.

Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen had an otherwise quiet outing but provided the decisive moment when he threaded an immaculate pass through the defence for Poulsen to beat advancing Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese in the 59th minute.

"We will be down to 22 players if Kvist is out".

Midfielder Christian Cueva missed a first-half penalty for Peru, skying it high over the bar, but Peru would miss many more chances in the second period, frustrated by some Schmeichel heroics and its own lack of composure in front of goal.

While in the earlier Group C game, group favourites France's victory over Australia meant that both teams knew they had to get a positive result in order to progress in the tournament.

The referee initially waved Peru's appeals away after Cueva appeared to be tripped by Poulsen but as play continued, the decision was being reviewed and the official eventually halted the action to point to the spot.

"The VAR system is there to make things fair, there has been a lot of discussion about the interruptions, but here it worked out well", added Hareide.

Denmark meanwhile is healthy and ready to go, feeling good after a 2-0 win over Mexico in a friendly the other day, with the team finding its scoring touch after scoring just once in the two games before that.

Yet he struck an very bad penalty way over the bar, leaving the red-and-white clad Peru fans distraught, not to mention the crestfallen Cueva himself.

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

It was not all plain sailing for Schmeichel against Peru either, with the Dane having to make six saves including a good reflex one from Farfan in the final 10 minutes.

If you weren't a Peru fan before, you probably are now.

It was to prove a costly miss, and Peru must be more clinical if they are to have any chance of qualifying.
