Kylian Mbappe scored twice as France became the first side to book their place in the last-16 of the World Cup, sealed with a 2-1 win over Denmark.

They were on track to get the job done with a match to spare when Mbappe put them in front in the second-half, but the defending champions were pegged back as Andreas Christensen equalised from a corner.

However, with four minutes re­maining, France’s star man bun­dled the ball home from close-range to restore the lead and ensure the defending champions are through to the knockout stages with mini­mal fuss.
