Maguire flies early, James after the game – Eriksen scores golden goal
Surprise in Group 2 of League A: On Wednesday evening, the Danish national team won their Nation League match at London’s Wembley Stadium with 1:0. England underplayed for an hour and found too few solutions – shortly before the end it was an ex-wolfsburger who secured the victory of the Danes.
England’s national coach Gareth Southgate made five changes to his starting line-up after 2-1 against Belgium: Coady replaced Dier in the trio, James, Phillips and Maitland-Niles replaced Alexander-Arnold, Henderson and Trippier in the midfield, and Kane took the lead over Calvert-Lewin in the attack.
Denmark’s coach Kasper Hjulmand sent the eleven who had also started in Iceland at the youngest 3-0. A decision that should pay off, because the 1992 European Champion played a very appealing first half.
To Walker-Foul: Eriksen meets from eleven meters
Denmark not only scored the first goal of the match when Dolberg came to a close after a corner ball variant and hit the outside net (8th) – the guests also appeared extremely disciplined, aggressive (59 percent of the matches won) and hardly allowed anything to happen. So it was not undeserved that Hjulmand’s team led to the break: After a foul by Walker to Delaney, Eriksen entered the penalty and scored in the middle (35th). By that time
, England was already outnumbered. The yellow preloaded Maguire had first made a technical error in a ball reception in the midfield and then followed by a bone and made Dolberg at the ankle – referee Jesus Gil Manzano had no choice, he expelled Maguire with yellow-red of the field (31.).
