EURO 2020 GROUP B
Manager Kasper Hjulmand Succeeded Age Hareide last year and is keen to add some attacking flair to the Danes’ solid defence. Hjulmand has some exciting wide players in the squad and his 4-2-3-1 formation can swiftly turn into a 4-3-3. Record P 11 W 8 D 1 L 2 All games Strengths • Solid goalkeeper and excellent centre-back options • An experienced squad and home advantage in the group stage Weaknesses • Lack of a clinical finisher could be costly • Other than Eriksen, the midfield is short of creativity Prospects Hjulmand has a settled squad and there is a nice balance to the first 11. Denmark are capable of beating Finland and Russia in Copenhagen and their defensive quality could make them tricky opponents in the knockout stages. Inside info Morten Pederson Sports reporter Coach Kasper Hjulmand will rely heavily on his experienced, bigname players. Denmark have the advantage off playing all three of their group matches at home and they feel that could play a big role in helping them qualify from the group. After that, anything can happen.
