Our prediction for this match:
Denmark and Faroe Islands face each other in a friendly in Herning on Wednesday evening, which pits together the two teams for the first time since August 2000. Back then the Danes defeated the Islanders 3-0, and you should bear in mind that the hosts are eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph over the minnows.
The Scandinavians have yet to find the net in the Nations League group stages, but they will not have a better chance than this to put an end to their goalless run. The visitors did remarkably well to beat Malta and Andorra in their first two group games in the Nations League, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry at MCH Arena. Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen, who watched the Lazio game from the bench at the weekend, is likely to start for the hosts.
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 (Faroe Islands):
Faroe Islands gained membership of FIFA on July 2, 1988 and they played their first official game on August 24 against Iceland. They were beaten by the Icelanders in Akranes, but two years later they recorded probably the most significant victory in the history of the national team as they defeated Austria 1-0 in Euro 1992 qualifiers.
Faroe Islands have yet to qualify for a major tournament, but they have been making progress year by year. The Landsliðið play their home games at Torsvollur and the capacity of the venue is 6.000. Faroe Islands recorded their biggest win against Gibraltar on March 1, 2014 (4-1) and they suffered their biggest defeat in 1996 when they were beaten 8-1 by Yugoslavia in front of home fans.
In the 2016 European Championship qualifiers Faroe Islands recorded a double victory over Greece, but the minnows eventually failed to book their place at the showpiece tournament in France. The likes of Frodi Benjaminsen, Oli Johannesen, Rogvi Jacobsen, Todi Jonsson and Jakup Mikkelsen are the most notable footballers who played for the Faroe Islands national team.
