Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Parken Stadium will host Sunday’s Nations League clash between Denmark and Iceland. The Danes aim to overtake Belgium in top position in Group 2, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Icelanders. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has netted two goals in the process to date.
Erik Hamren’s troops, on the other hand, head into the match following the Euro 2021 playoffs final against Hungary, meaning that tired legs are likely to prove to be a big problem for the visiting team. Since Erik Hamren is likely to rest several first-team regulars in Sunday’s showdown, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Kasper Hjumland’s charges. When the two teams met in Reykjavik earlier in the process Denmark outclassed Iceland 3-0.
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 (Iceland):
Iceland had little to no success during the first 60 years of entering the FIFA competitions, failing to qualify to a single major tournament in that period, but the team then went on to make tremendous progress at the start of the 21st century.
The Nordic side narrowly missed out on a place at the 2014 World Cup, losing in the play-off to Croatia, but they then enjoyed a thoroughly impressive qualifying campaign to reach the Euro 2016, taking 20 points from 10 matches to leave Turkey and Netherlands trailing in their wake.
As a result, the generation featuring players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aron Gunnarsson, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson and Emil Hallfredsson will go down as one of the most successful in the national team history and it could be quite some time before another team repeat their success. Even if he was only used as a bit-part player during the Euro 2016 qualifiers, Eidur Gudjohnsen has got to be mentioned as the first Icelandic footballer to have played for top European sides.
