LIn recent years, the team has been in the habit of ending up in nerve-wracking playoff matches in qualifying tournaments to decide whether there should be Danish participation in the big finals. We have met Sweden and we have met Ireland.
It seems that it will not be necessary this time. On Thursday night, Denmark won quite superiorly with 4-0 on the road against Austria. The most difficult task on paper for the national team in the World Cup qualifiers.
In the future, the match will be remembered for being the one where Andreas Skov Olsen really made his name on the national team. And probably secured a starting place at the upcoming European Championships, which may well start tomorrow, as the national team is currently performing. In six days, Denmark has received nine points and a goal score of 14-0.
For it was 21-year-old Andreas Skov Olsen, who came in at the position 0-0 in the second half and just three minutes later began the Danish party by kicking the ball into the net with his right leg after a great deep run and presentation by Thomas Delaney .
