Andreas Christensen was brave and solid in stopping Peru‘s attempts to score in World Cup opener with Denmark at Mordovia Arena in Saransk, Russia.
However, the centre-back limped off the pitch in some discomfort lately in the second half following a great performance.

Christensen could be a concern for the Danes as they will take on Australia (Thursday 21st June) and France (Tuesday 26th June) to complete Group C.
Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta was an unused sub in Spain 3-3 draw against Portugal last night, while both Olivier Giroud (who provided an assist) and N’Golo Kante featured in France win against Australia today.
