Denmark’s unity in diversity helped them see off an inspired Wales side
Wales came inspired and high on confidence after their 4-1 win over Republic of Ireland to face a struggling Denmark side. But, Denmark’s unity in diversity helped them see off an inspired Wales side.
Denmark’s international players strike over commercial image right issues with their FA has caused havoc in the nation and during that unrest they were forced to play with their amateur and futsal players in friendly against Slovakia.
However, they lost their friendly against Slovakia 3-0, but that wouldn’t have cost them much. They could have lost their UEFA membership if they’d have failed to appear for the friendly against Slovakia.
‘A dose of reality’.
Wales have suffered defeat at the hands of Denmark.

Thankfully, things sorted out temporarily and Denmark were back to their full strength against Wales. Their unity in diversity helped them see off an inspired Wales side. Christian Eriksen produces a double to see off young Ryan Giggs’ side.
Ryan Giggs got a good start of his coaching career in competitive matches with 4-1 thumping victory over Republic of Ireland and that too with very young faces. But, he was soon realized that experience is very important at top level.
However, Denmark are also a very young side but these youngsters have got the experience of playing in World Cup. Yussuf Poulsen and Pione Sisto were in Denmark’s starting lineup supported by Christian Eriksen behind them.
Wales started very well but their failure to find themselves early on the scoresheet helped Denmark to fight back. Lass Schone played a great cross-field pass to Henrik Dalsgaard who fed Spurs star Eriksen score a low shot off the post.
A united Denmark side in diversity had the lead and they made the most of it. they didn’t allow Gareth Bale’s Wales side to dominate the game after that. The hero and man of the match of the last game, Ethan Ampadu become the villain this time for Wales. The 17-year-old was caught handling the ball from a Viktor Fischer’s shot in the penalty area and referee awarded a penalty to Denmark.
Eriksen hardly makes mistake from these situations and he fired his second of the night to give Denmark 2-0 lead. From there, it was difficult for Wales to come back in the game. Bale took many half chances trying something special from outside of the box, but it wasn’t his day.
One off day for Real Madrid’s star and Dragon’s suffered. A day ago, we were going gaga over young Wales side performances against Republic of Ireland side. Within hours Ryan Giggs was given a reality check against a competitive side.
