Denmark versus Wales football match highlight
For the first time in the tournament, Casper’s Dolberg got a chance in the starting XI and scored a pair of goals. Denmark advanced to the quarter-finals of the European Championship after beating Wales in a thrilling performance.
Let’s see Denmark versus Wales football match highlight…
The 1992 champions won their last 16 match at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam 4-0 on Saturday. Joachim Mail and Martin Brathwaite widened the gap towards the end after a pair of goals from Dolberg.
The Danes reached the last eight of this first continental competition since 2004.
Ball possession or attack, Denmark was ahead in all aspects of the match. They took 16 shots for the goal. 8 were on target. In contrast, Wales’ 11 shots had only one goal. Their best star was Gareth Bale as his own shadow.
Wales, knocked out as Group A runners-up, put pressure on Denmark in the opening minutes. They got the first good chance in the ninth minute. Bell’s strong shot from outside the D-box went just outside the post.
Gradually, Denmark, the runners-up in the ‘B’ group, increased their attack by adjusting themselves. In the 27th minute, they went ahead with a great goal by Dulberg. Mikel passed to Dolberg after cutting one of his teammates’ increased ball from the midfield. The 23-year-old footballer found the address with a right foot shot from outside the D-box.
The gap could have doubled after three minutes. Mikel passed from the byline on the left after giving and taking the ball with his teammate. Wales goalkeeper Danny Ward blocked Dulberg’s flick from close range.
Denmark increased the lead in the 48th minute by taking advantage of the opponent’s mistake. Brathwaite increased the pass by entering the D-box with the ball on the right side. Welsh defender Neko Williams put the ball in Dolberg’s foot in front of a six-yard box in an attempt to clear. The French club Nice forward did not make a mistake in sending the ball into the net with a right foot shot.
He became the second Danish footballer after Henrik Larsen to score two goals in a Euro knockout match. Larsen achieved this feat in the 1992 semi-final against the Netherlands.
Denmark dominated the rest of the time. Matthias Jansen’s shot in the 86th minute touched the goalkeeper’s hand and hit the post. In the 81st minute, Brathwaite’s free kick flew over the crossbar from the front of the D-box.
In the 8th minute, another attempt of this Barcelona forward took place in the post. Mail made the scoreline 3-0 after two minutes. He took control of his teammate’s cross D-box and hit the target with his left foot shot.
In the last minute of the allotted time, Harry Wilson of Wales, who was substituted in the second half, got a red card for fouling the mail. Brathwaite ensured a big win by sending the ball into the net in added time. The linesman first raised the offside flag. The decision to change the VAR. Mate Denmark at the festival.
After losing the first two matches, the Danes were in danger of leaving the group stage. They beat Russia 4-1 in the last round and took an incredible place in the last 16. Another great victory went one step further.
Christian Eriksen seemed to be out of the field, an added motivation for his teammates. At the beginning of the match, a huge jersey written by Eriksen was displayed.
He suddenly fell while walking towards the end of the first half against Finland in the first match at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen. He was taken to hospital after receiving treatment in the field. The sports world was stunned when he fell ill like this. He was released from the hospital after the surgery.
This time it is the turn of Denmark to go further. They will face either the Netherlands or the Czech Republic in the last eight next Saturday.
