A victory over Denmark boosts French hopes

Share |

A really nice goal by Thierry Henry and a late Sylvain Wiltord penalty shot gave France a 2-0 win over Denmark in a World Cup warm-up match on Wednesday.

In a very good result for their fans, France offered a more convincing show than in a laboured 1-0 victory over Mexico on Saturday but looked nervous at times against opponents who failed to qualify for the Cup.

"Victories now don't really count but it's always nice to win," France coach Raymond Domenech expressed.

"I don't really have any concerns. I know how good the players in this group are. There's still some fine-tuning to do before it gets real."

We must remembert that Henry rested against Mexico. For his goal, he raced into the box to collect a headed pass from fellow striker Louis Saha and beat Denmark goalkeeper Jesper Christiansen from close range on 12 minutes.

It's good to notice that it was Henry's 32nd international goal in his 77th appearance, which makes the Arsenal forward the most prolific scorer in France's current squad ahead of David Trezeguet, who has scored 31.

Striker Wiltord doubled the advantage on 76 minutes after fellow substitute Franck Ribery, who thrilled the Lens crowd on his second appearance for the "Bleus", was brought down in the box.
