Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Hampden Park will host Monday’s World Cup qualifier between Scotland and Denmark. The Scotts are on a five-game winning run in Group F, but they will have a big fish to fry in the last group match. Southampton attacker Che Adams should continue to lead the line for the hosts after finding the net in a 2-0 win over Moldova. Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay should faces race against clock to be fit for the match, while Nathan Patterson, who impressed in the triumph over Moldova, is banned.
The Danes, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in Group F intact. Considering that eight Scotland players are one yellow card away from suspension, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. Leipzig attacker Yussuf Poulsen should continue to lead the line for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Liam Cooper):
Liam Cooper is a Scotland international, who was born in Kingston Upon Hull, England. Cooper was eligible to play for both England and Scotland, but he decided to represent the Scotts on the international stage.
The Leeds United defender, who is capable of playing at left and centre back, received his first ever call-up for Scotland on 10 March 2016 for a friendly match against Denmark, but he did not make his debut for the senior team back then. Liam Cooper began his career at Hull City and, after spending several seasons on loan at Carlisle United and Huddersfield Town he joined Chesterfield in 2013.
On 13 August, 2014, he signed a three-year deal with Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. Speaking of individual honours, Liam Cooper was named Young Player of the Year for the 2007/2008 season (Hull City). It has to be noted that he won Football League Two with Chesterfield in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Denmark):
The Denmark national team participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions and they recorded their best result at the 1998 tournament. The Danes made it to the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup in France, but Brazil proved to be a big catch for the Nordic side. De Rod-Hvide did remarkably well to win the 1992 European Championship, but they were more than fortunate to qualify for the Euro 1992 finals.
Denmark finished their qualifying campaign in second place in the group, but thanks to Yugoslavia’s exclusion from the competition, the team booked their place at the Euro 1992 finals. Denmark impressed at the tournament in Sweden, with the team outplaying Germany in the title game (2-0).
Brothers Michael and Bryan Laudrup and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel are regarded as Denmark’s most notable players. It has to be noted that Morten Olsen was in charge of the Danish national team from 2000 to 2015. The Danes play their home games at Telia Parken and the capacity of the venue is 38,065 (all-seater).
