The France and Denmark men’s national football teams have played out an uninspiring goalless draw in their final 2018 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup Group C match.

French and Danish soccer players rarely threatened each other’s goalposts during the fixture at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital city of Moscow on Tuesday as chances for either side were few and far between.

Both teams were just happy to sit back and earn the point as they had already advanced to the knockout stage.

It was the first scoreless match of the tournament after 36 games.

The France men’s national football team, nicknamed Les Bleus (The Blues), will take on the runner-up of Group D in the round of 16, while Danish Dynamite will next face that group's winner.
