Please read our thoughts about this UEFA Euro 2020 Qualification Ireland vs Denmark match, here below.

Ireland vs Denmark

Danish Dynamite is one step behind taking the 1st place in Group D. At the moment, visitors stand at 1st place with 15 points, Switzerland at 2nd place and Ireland, which still has chances at 3rd. In general, all results in that group were very predicted, since Denmark shows incredible football recently and Switzerland plays great so far. Unfortunately, somebody has to leave without qualification, and most likely Ireland will be the unlucky one this time. Playing at home, Ireland still unbeaten as they drew the match with Switzerland and won over the Georgia and Gibraltar easily. Most interesting, that in the previous game between these opponents, Ireland took a point while playing in Copenhagen, so we can call this result a great achievement. In 3 matches against favourites of the group, Ireland lost only once in Geneva. They absolutely deserve a chance to be qualified to the main Euro 2020 tournament. However, most likely Switzerland will not fail to play against Gibraltar, which lost all previous matches.

Key Players

Ireland played against New Zealand in a friendly game and had a great opportunity to have an active training. They won this game with 3:1 result, even being behind. Lots of players of the team were rotated during this match, so this could give more energy for starting lineup against Denmark. Most of the Green Army players are from English Premier League and Championship. They play for well-known teams worldwide and have a great experience which can be used playing against this strong opponent. The biggest strength of the team is the defence. They conceded only 4 goals in 7 matches and took two important draws against the favourites of the group. Unfortunately, next game will miss Coleman, strong leader of the teams and defence due to red card taken in the match against Switzerland.

The team from Denmark is much more various. Most of the players play in different countries and have an absolutely different style of game experience. The Red and Whites like to play more attacking football. During this qualification, teams scored 22 goals in 7 matches with more than 3 goals per game on average. Christian Eriksen is the leader of the team already scored 5 and made 4 assists. Moreover, Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Mathias Jorgensen and many other players are affecting team to play very strong football absolutely in all areas.
