The match between Denmark vs Finland will be held at Parken Stadium, Denmark, on July 12.
Norwich striker Teemu Pukki is undoubtedly Finland’s most reliable football player. On the other hand, Denmark has a strong backup, with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, center-back pairs Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and playmaker Christian Eriksen.
Denmark has a glorious history of having won the 1992 European Championship, and has the benefit of being part of all three group games at its Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.
Finland put up a united front for qualifying in its first major tournament, with Markku Kanerva leading them ahead with precision. The foundation of Kanerva’s team has been so strong staying together, and it can be attributed to the fact that it led them to the Under-19 European Championship in 2009. It has only won one of the last 22 confrontations between the Nordic sides, while Denmark clinched 15 of the games.
The last time Finland won in Denmark was in 1949. However, Denmark was subjected to defeat in only two of its last 23 games, in total. Both the cases were against group opponent Belgium. Nevertheless, it surged ahead in Euro 2020 qualifying without any defeat. Out of the earlier five games, four of them saw Denmark clinch victory one after the other, which has bolstered their confidence.
Denmark: Christian Eriksen, Yussuf Poulsen, Martin Braithwaite
Finland: Teemu Pukki, Lukas Hradecky, Robin Lod
