A total of 17 times these two nations have come up against each other, with France winning eight of those and seven were won by Denmark. The remaining two games ended in draws. This shows how difficult it is to call a winner since there is very little to separate them.

In that game, Sophus Nielsen of Denmark famously scored 10 goals.
