Denmark scored a single goal to beat Peru in their first game of the 2018 World Cup on Saturday. It was a tight game between two closely ranked teams; 11th for Peru, and 12th for Denmark. Keeper Kasper Schmeichel had some wonderful saves for Denmark, including some strikes from up close. Australia lost to heavyweights France in a game that included a video review for a penalty-kick, and an own goal. World Cup 2018 is the first to introduce video assistant referees, used when there's a match-changing play, such as a goal, penalty, or red cards. In the Australia vs. France game, there was a penalty that wasn't called on the field, but upon video review it was determined to be a penalty and a penalty kick was awarded; France scored. If Australia can avoid penalties and own-goals, they may stand a chance against the higher-ranked Denmark.
The game at Samara Arena, Samara starts at 4 p.m. local time, or 8 a.m. ET. You can watch it live on FS1 in English, or in Spanish on Telemundo and NBC Universo through your cable company. If you don't have cable, you can stream it via Hulu with Live TV or fuboTV. With such an early start on the west coast, it's the perfect opportunity to take advantage of fuboTV's 30 hours of cloud DVR so you can record the game and watch it later.
Denmark and France are tied with the lead in Group C, and it's expected they'll progress to the knockout stage beginning June 30th.
