Stunned, Denmark bows to Finland

Fatally affected by Christian Eriksen’s discomfort, Denmark resumed the game without conviction against Finland. With a reverse at the key.

Past the fear and emotion linked to the discomfort of Christian Eriksen, which collapsed on the lawn of the Parken Stadium shortly before the break of this DenmarkFinland counting for Euro 2020, the game has resumed its rights – in agreement with the two selections concerned, this Saturday evening in Copenhagen. After an hour and a half of interruption, the game was restarted at the 43e minute. To go to its term on a short Finnish success.

Deprived of their master to play and their minds inevitably cloudy, the Danes may have dominated the debates, it is on the sole occasion of their opponents – a foray on the left side punctuated by a head pitted furious at six meters – that ‘they bowed at the hour mark (0-1, 60e). All the more annoying that they have for their part compiled no less than 23 attempts.

Against the course of the game

Denmark did have a chance to respond – on a penalty generously awarded to Poulsen for light contact in the Finnish area – but Hojbjerg trembled as he passed the sentence, failing to place and press his shot enough to deceive the vigilance of Hradecky (74e). Shaken and finally beaten for their first in this European Championship, Denmark is seriously complicating the task in a pool also made up of the Belgium and the Russia. The main thing this evening is elsewhere, however, for the Danes.
