France just too good

Man of the match
PSG’s star man Kylian Mbappe was the best player tonight. His movement, pace, and dribbling all were exceptional. He scored twice and booked France’s position in the round of 16 of the world cup.
Now France is qualified for the next stage of the world cup and Denmark has to beat Australia to make it to the last 16. Australia defeated Tunisia earlier in the day by 1-0. It will be a miracle if Tunisia somehow finds its way into the next round.
