It’s hard to read much into Denmark’s 1-0 defeat to Finland on Saturday night with the Danes being forced to play the remainder of the match following Christian Eriksen’s horrible collapse.
It was far from ideal, and Kasper Hjulmund was always going to struggle to motivate his players against the Finns. Kasper Schmeichel says that the players will be going out to win this game and they’ll be looking to do it for Eriksen, who remains in hospital for the time being.
They missed a penalty against their fellow Nordic outfit and they produced an xG of around 1.8.
Finland had just a single effort on goal and it somehow managed to find the back of the net. Belgium had a very straightforward task on Saturday evening as they swept aside a disappointing Russia outfit. Stanlslav Cherchesov’s side barely threatened, so the Red Devils rarely had to get out of second gear.
Romelu Lukaku showed his Golden Boot credentials with two well-taken goals and he could add to his tally here. The Inter striker comes off the back of a terrific season and has looked extremely sharp so far.
