Vaas and Mahle’s opening goals should be enough for the Danes to win against the unimaginable Scots. “Danish Dynamite” continues to lead Group F with confidence.

On the fourth day of World Cup qualifying, Denmark hosted Scotland, starting with Arsenal’s Tierney and Liverpool’s Robertson. Manchester United’s McTominay, who impressed during the European Championship, was absent from groin surgery. For the hosts, coach Kaspar Hjulmund turned a little closer than the European Championship – in which the Dane made it to the semi-finals. Former Dortmunder Delaney debuted in midfield, with Leipziger Poulsen making a stormy start from the start.

And he wasn’t the only one who stormed off from the start: The Dane dominated the game from the first minute and quickly went 2-0 up. First Vaas completed a Hjberg cross with a header (14′), a short while later Mahle tunneled through Gordon (15′) to Scotland after taking a remarkable ball. The opening double strike was followed by 30 minutes of quiet time in which the Scots never came dangerously in front of Schmeichel’s box. However, as expected, the hosts also shifted down two gears.
World Cup Qualification, Group F
The second half started more promising for the Scotland guests: Gilmour’s powerful shot went slightly wide from the Dane’s left post (47′). But the brief excitement did not last long. Gradually, the game intensified again, although Robertson & Co. took possession of the ball.
Schmeichel argued vigorously
Schmeichel had to save at the start of the final ten minutes: Leicester City’s number one dived after a well-placed shot by Fraser and swung the ball around the post (81′). Two harmless Danes tried one last time in the first half as well: however, Larsson ran freely under Hojberg’s cross, then the former Munich player himself led the ball to Gordon (87′).
The opening double strike was enough for Danish Dynamite till the end. Hjulmund’s eleven continue to lead Group F (12 points) and remove themselves from second place (Israel, seven points).
