agent sbobet We round up Thursday's talking points from Russia, with Argentina humbled, France winning, and more debate over VAR.Each day during the tournament, we will be pulling together all the big stories and best reaction right here in a nutshell, so you do not miss a thing.Here are the highlights from day seven at the World Cup.
Denmark 1-1 Australia
agent sbobet Another VAR penalty decision helped Australia to a 1-1 draw with Denmark in their World Cup Group C clash in Samara.Denmark took the lead on seven minutes through Christian Eriksen's superb half volley, before VAR came into play as Yussuf Poulsen was adjudged to have handled from Mathew Leckie's header.Mile Jedinak stepped up to score his second of the tournament (38), and despite Australia impressing in the second half, it stayed 1-1. Australia must now win their final group game to stand a chance of qualifying for the knockout stage.
France 1-0 Peru
Kylian Mbappe's first World Cup goal was enough to send France into the last 16 with a 1-0 win against Peru in Group C.The striker slotted home from a deflected Olivier Giroud cross in the 34th minute and became France's youngest ever goalscorer at a major tournament in the process, overtaking David Trezeguet's previous record (vs Saudi Arabia in 1998).Peru impressed again with their attacking play in Yekaterinburg - particularly in the second half - but once again could not find the breakthrough and will exit the competition at the group stages after their final game against Australia next week.
Argentina 0-3 Croatia
Croatia are through to the last 16 of the World Cup after a stunning 3-0 victory in Nizhny Novgorod which leaves Argentina in serious danger of exiting at the group stage.Ante Rebic made the most of a Willy Caballero howler to open the scoring in the 53rd minute before Luka Modric curled in a sensational second (81) and Ivan Rakitic stroked in an injury-time third to secure his side's passage to the knockout stages.But after their opening 1-1 draw with Iceland, Argentina go into their final Group D game with Nigeria with only one point and their hopes of staying in Russia beyond the group stage are hanging by a thread. agent sbobet
