59th minute: On the left, Eriksen teased Poulsent, who hit the ball (1-0) from the eight yards to the side of the goal.
At the beginning of the match, the more powerful Peruvians fought a dominant position, but after 20 minutes, the Danes took control. However, no team was able to work out a dangerous goal – they tried only remotely – mostly because the attack lines were always in a shortage of defense. In the 44th minute, within the sixteen-sixth corner, Poulsen drove the opposing Cueva’s leg but Bakary Papa Gassama saw no fouls. But one minute later, the Gambia referee – after being told by video-guided colleagues – stopped the game and sentenced him to penalties. The injured Cueva shot the ball high above the goal.
After the break, both sides were entrusted with the contradictions, while the Danish made a move in the 59th minute with Poulsen. The Peruvian defeated their opponents with enormous pressure, and for the sake of efficiency, the first-ever, but this time only their substitute, Paolo Guerrero, and the single-player game, changed to the double formation. The South Americans slammed their opponents into their own space, and before the Danish gate several times a dangerous situation emerged. With Schmeichel, who is also a fan of the brawl, the leading player in Danish finishing is always clear, so the European team has retained its minimal benefit until it was down.
