Denmark made them pay two minutes later on the counter-attack as Christian Eriksen laid the ball of for Poulsen to finish inside the near post.

Here are the winners and losers from Denmark's narrow win.

One fan even reportedly put on weight - the goal being 24 kilograms - to ensure an easy-access match seat to watch his beloved Peru.

"Peru did as much as possible to win the game and score".

Peru, who left out all-time top-scorer Paolo Guerrero from their starting line-up, were awarded a penalty by referee Bakary Gassama after he consulted with the video assistant referee for Poulsen's foul on Cueva.

World Cup is awarded to North America
Leaders of the Morocco bid said they expected an African tournament to generate $5 billion in revenue. Even if Trump wins re-election, his presidency will end before the 2026 World Cup .

This was only the first weekend of the World Cup, 2018 and teams have been playing like its now or never.

His 29th cap for Denmark, the opener was just Poulsen's fifth and brought the first time he had scored in consecutive games for his country, after netting 2-0 friendly win over Mexico.

Denmark looked more assured after the restart.

The star striker was ruled out of the World Cup for doping but earned permission to play, cutting his ban short, just prior to the tournament. But already, after seven games it has been tested and used to positively affect games.

The referee initially waved Peru's appeals away after Cueva appeared to be tripped by Poulsen but as play continued, the decision was being reviewed and the official eventually halted the action to point to the spot.

Italy prepares Spanish migrant convoy, faces French criticism
But the political mood in Italy has changed, with resentment growing among voters toward both migrants and the European Union . The IMRCC coordinated all these actions from the start and took responsibility for the rescue of all these people.

After being awarded a penalty via VAR, the 26-year-old skied his effort from the spot and was consoled by his team-mates as they walked off at the end of the half.

The Argentine coach backed Cueva to bounce back from his disappointing evening and said he was impressed by the way the Sao Paulo midfielder performed in the second half.

In the Denmark vs Peru game, Peru is making a comeback exactly 36 years after their last world cup appearance.

"We have an advantage in the air - we're better in this department and have to make it count".

"They got very little and probably deserved more - sometimes that happens".

U.S. officially repeals net neutrality rules
The rules also restricted ISPs from charging extra for certain traffic, creating so-called fast lanes for companies and consumers. Advocates of net neutrality fear without the rules in place, internet providers will have too much control over web content.

It was to prove a costly miss, and Peru must be more clinical if they are to have any chance of qualifying.
