More than 40,000 Peruvians travelled to Russia to support their team. Peru were given the chance to take the lead after being awarded a penalty on a VAR decision at the end of the first-half but Cristian Cueva's shot went over the bar. Denmark had now won four of their five opening games at World Cup finals. They lost against Netherlands in 2010.
