"I know one point will be enough but that's not a good way to start the match", Norwegian Hareide said.
Denmark will need just a point from their final Group C game with France to qualify for the last 16 of the World Cup, with Les Bleus already through. When asked if Hareide's reported comments had added spice to the match, Deschamps told reporters: "Salt, pepper, vinegar... whatever you wish".
Denmark created the first opening after three minutes when Andreas Cornelius headed on for Martin Braithwaite, who went down under pressure from a pair of defenders but saw his penalty appeal dismissed by referee Sandro Ricci.
France and Denmark have dominated Group C in Russian Federation, each with six points and similar two-goal credit, and with their clash in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium also on Tuesday to determine the group victor. We haven't done our best in terms of play but we've worked very hard for the points. "There are no risks, if they're here it's because they're ready to play". "It wasn't a very nice thing", said Deschamps. Denmark are hopeful midfielder William Kvist will return at some stage after breaking two ribs and suffering a punctured lung against Peru, although it won't be in time to face France.
