End of 2nd Half
FT
FULL TIME - DENMARK 2-0 FRANCE
France huffed and puffed in search of a goal in the second half but, ultimately, it was a fruitless endeavour. The same can be said of Denmark's win, however, with Croatia beating Austria 3-1 in Vienna, topping the group and going through to the final four.
