Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Denmark will be aiming to retain their spot in top two in Group D when they host Gibraltar at their Telia Parken. The Danes are on the verge of booking their place at the 2020 European Championship, but head coach Age Hareide must warn his men against complacency. Age Hareide’s troops are eyeing their third consecutive win at home in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, and they are likely to beat the minnows without any difficulties.
Gibraltar, who suffered a loss in each of their six group games, are unlikely to make a miracle in Copenhagen on Friday night. When the two teams met at Victoria Stadium earlier in the process, Denmark crushed Gibraltar 6-0. A man to watch in the home side will be Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
Highlighted Player (Christian Eriksen):
Christian Eriksen born on 14th of February 1992 is a Danish football who plays as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen played in the youth of Odense BK and Ajax Amsterdam where he got picked up by Tottenham Hotspur after 3 seasons.
On 29th of August Eriksen got transferred for 13 million euro and is one of the most expensive Danish football players of all time. Christian Eriksen made his debut in March 2010 for the Danish national team and was the youngest player during the World Cup in 2010.
So far Eriksen played for over 200 club games for Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen is known for his great passing skills and game overview. In his career Eriksen managed to become national champion with Ajax 3 times and won several individual prices for being one of the most talented player of the moment.
Highlighted Team (Gibraltar):
Gibraltar played their first unofficial match against Jersey in the 1993 Island Games. The Gibraltarians suffered a 2-1 loss to Jersey, but they did well to hold Slovakia to a goalless draw in their first official international match. Gibraltar participated in the 2016 World Cup qualifiers and they were drawn in Group D alongside Germany, Poland, Georgia, Republic of Ireland and Scotland.
They failed to impress on their debut in the World Cup qualifiers and it has to be noted that the minnows suffered a loss in each of their ten group games (goal difference 2:56). Gibraltar recorded their first ever win against Malta on April 6, 2014 and that is considered the team’s biggest success.
Danny Higginbotham, who played for the likes of Manchester United, Southampton, Sunderland, Stoke City and Sheffield United during his professional career, has three caps for Gibraltar national football team and he is considered the greatest player who whore Gibraltar shirt. The Gibraltarians play their home games at Estadio Algarve, speaking of qualifying matches.
