Our prediction for this Nations League match:
After going to Trnava, Slovakia, to take on the hosts in a friendly, Denmark is returning home to play Wales in their opening match in the League of Nations. The match is going to take place in Aarhus at the Ceres Park. The teams both have four wins each in the eight games they played against each other so far. After looking strong in defense but without many ideas up front in the World Cup, Denmark still managed to take Croatia down to the wire in the 1/8 finals before they lost on penalties. The Welsh will have already played Republic of Ireland before this game and they will be match fit, even if they did have a bad run-in ahead of the League of Nations winning just once in six games. Denmark will have to be on their best against Bale and young talent like Robertson. Wales should at least walk away with a point.
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 (Wales):
Despite being part of the United Kingdom, Wales national football team has been competing in FIFA tournaments since 1950, although they have so far only reached two tournament finals. The Dragons surprised everyone by making it to the quarter-finals at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, but little did they know that it would remain their only World Cup appearance up to date.
Wales had plenty of problems in the European Championship qualifiers as well, but they finally managed to end the barren run by securing their place at the Euro 2016 in France. Led by the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams, the Dragons performed admirably throughout the campaign and even reached the 8th position in the FIFA Rankings in October 2015.
Neville Southall remains the team’s most capped player, but the generation that included Ryan Giggs, Gary Speed, Craig Bellamy and John Hartson will also be remembered for some impressive performances against top European national teams.
