In order to advance to the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup, France has become the first country to do so.

On Saturday, the defending champions defeated Denmark 2-1 thanks to a brace from Kylian Mbappe.

Just after the hour mark, the Paris Saint-Germain forward scored after a deft one-two with Theo Hernandez.

But Andreas Christensen’s bullet header for the Danes evened the score.

Later on, Mbappe scored the game’s winning goal by converting Antoine Griezmann’s cross to keep Les Bleus’ perfect record in Qatar.

The 23-year-old is currently tied with Zinedine Zidane for the most goals scored by a French player (31), making him the tournament’s undisputed top scorer.

With six points, Didier Deschamps’ team leads Group D, three points clear of second-place Australia, while Denmark has yet to record a victory, holding just a point through two games.
