Wales vs. Denmark Tip & Quotes, 26.06.2021 – 18:00
On the early Saturday evening, 26.06.2021 at 6 p.m., the national teams from Denmark and Wales will meet in the Dutch Johan-Cruijff-ArenA in Amsterdam in the European Championship final. The Dragons finished second in Group A, behind Italy (9) and ahead of Switzerland (4) and Turkey (0). Last Monday, the Scandinavians made it to the eighth finals by beating Russia. Together with the Russians and Finland, they had three counters on the credit side. The three-way comparison (goal ratio) made the Danes second in the group, despite only three points from three European Championship group games.

The national team of Robert Page was clearly behind despite the B-11 of the Italians. The Azzurri had more possession and pressed offensively. The defensive Welsh had only one chance in the first round through a header by Gunter (27th). The southern Europeans awarded 1-0 by Pessina (17th, 42nd), Belotti (24th) and Chiesa (29th), or to extend the lead after Pessina’s second chance. In the 39th minute the Squadra Azzurra earned 1:0 through Pessina in front. After the break tea, the game needed no more start-up time, as in the first round – Bernardeschi hit the post (53rd) after a free kick variant. On the other hand, Wales gave Ramsey a huge chance to equalize (54th). A few moments later Wales had to get along with one man less (55th, Red Card Ampadu). The Italians developed further margins through Chiesa and Belotti (58th, 65th). In Rome Wales lurked in shorthandedness only for counter-attack and had the next big opportunity to equalise, but Bale forgave (76th). The last occasions were the Azzurri – Belotti (89th) and Joker Cristante (90th +2) missed the final decision. After that, it was over.
The Page Eleven took Italy’s first defeat to the EURO. The two group games against Switzerland (1:1) and Turkey (2:0) brought the Dragons the eighth-final. In 2016, Wales also made the preliminary round and even made it to the semi-finals of the European Championships. Previously, Belgium were eliminated in the quarter-finals at the final in France, before the later European champion Portugal was able to win 2-0 against Wales in the semi-finals.
Gareth Bale is undoubtedly the star of the Welsh national squad. The forward, who is currently on contract with the Tottenham Hotspur and is returning to the old Real Madrid club, has a goal drought of 1005 minutes in the national team. Connor Roberts, Aaron Ramsey and Kieffer Moore scored one goal each.
Due to the dismissal against Italy, Wales has to give up defending champion Ethan Ampadu (Chelsea London) in the quarter-finals against Denmark. Otherwise, National Coach Page will have the entire squad available.

From the outset, the Danes tried to develop a lot of steam and exert pressure against Russia. But this only succeeded up to the penalty area, because the Sbornaja stood well in the back and closed the rooms. The Russians even had the first chance of the game after a counter against Golovin (18th). Only ten minutes later, after a long-range shot from Höjbjerg, the “home team“ had the first opportunity to lead (28th). With 70% possession for Kasper Hjulmand’s national team, the half-time break continued. Shortly before the change of sides Damsgaard scored 1-0 for the Scandinavians (38th). In the second 45 minutes, the Danes then benefited from a disastrous mispass by Russian midfield actor Zobnin, whom Poulsen gratefully accepted and increased to 2-0 (59th). After a harmless duel, the Russians were all at once awarded a questionable penalty, which Dzyuba used 1:2 (70th). In the final phase, however, Russia’s defense broke up. The stadium in Copenhagen developed into a rabbit house after the two gates in the final phase of Christensen (79th) and Maehle (82nd) within three minutes. Danish Dynamite ended up winning highly deserved 4-1.
The Hjulmand-Elf finished second despite failing on the first two match days against Finland (0:1) and Belgium (1:2) and thus moved into the eighth finals. A logical consequence of the strong year 2021, in which the two test games shortly before the start of the European Championship against Germany (1:1) and Bosnia (2:0) were played properly and also in the World Championship qualifier in March three wins from three games were won. At the last EURO, the Danes were still spectators and the final round in 2012 had already ended after the preliminary round.
The Scandinavians are there with five European Championship goals in the upper third of the most goal-hungry national teams at the European Championship. With two goals, Yussuf Poulsen is the most successful clipper in the Danish jersey. Andreas Christensen, Mikkel Damsgaard and Joakim Maehle cheered on their stalls once in a while.
With the exception of Christian Eriksen (heart problems), the 1992 European Champion can take on Wales in the top squad.

We expect a balanced international match between Wales and Denmark in the first Euro eighth finals of the European Championship. The Scandinavians qualified for the knockout phase with only three points and put the drama around their midfielder Christian Eriksen away well. The Dragons scored one more goal in Group A and have only just narrowly lost against the currently best team in Italy. On paper, the Danes are stronger, but also severely weakened by the failure of Eriksen, who is one of the stars in the team. The Northern Europeans no longer have a superstar like Gareth Bale, but the attacker from the Tottenham Hotspur is also without a goal for a long time (1005 minutes). The form of the day will be decided by the European Championships eighth final. We are pointing to a goal-scoring duel in Amsterdam with a possible decision only in overtime or penalty shootout.
