Denmark eliminated France but it didn’t help them much


Denmark did everything in their power, but it was not enough to reach a ticket to the final stage of the Nations League. His victory against an unknown France puts him on the showcase at the gates of the World Cup, and he claims that his role in the last European Championship is the result of the good work he has been doing for years. Two goals in the first half lifted the team from a dull moment Mbappe (2-0).

France has been less so, proof that the bad feeling it left in the Nations League was no accident. Deschamps’ team started with the intention of dominating the match, with several good chances against Schmeichel, but it fell like a house of cards. Without personality, this time Mbappé’s intervention did not appear either, nullified by the defense of a Denmark that waited for its moment.

The losses of Camavinga and of Tchouameni in the midfield they developed nerves in France, a weak team in the Nordic territory. Every corner kick against is a nightmare, punished by a Denmark that through the boot of Eriksen the revolution is armed. A good pass from the United player in damsgaard He continued with a lateral center that he could not deny Upamecano. Dolbergat the near post, carried then Areola: 1-0.

France went from optimism to anxiety. In KO before the break. Just five minutes after the first blow, another landed in the jaw. A poorly defended corner enabled the extension of Delaney in front of the place, where Slov Olsen surprised by tight left foot: 2-0. Although France wanted to wake up after the break, Denmark were not intimidated by the world champion’s attempted reaction.

If it does not come, it is mainly because Schmeichel. The Nice goalkeeper was denied the goal three times in a row Mbappe, intuitive to make the French night bitter. Tireless in effort, the PSG player had no night and his team gradually disappeared. Denmark were always closer to conviction than suffering to tie the win. Braithwaite he forgave as soon as he left, but did not spoil a prestigious victory against the mighty France.
