Northern Ireland vs Denmark

Denmark are top of the table at the moment

Recent years have seen Denmark rise to global prominence in football, but this isn’t merely a triumphant one-time tournament. Denmark’s form in the qualifiers has continued to prove they are no longer a side that anyone can take lightly. The team currently has a five-match winning streak and will aim to finish at the top of the qualifying round. With 7 wins in 9 matches, they are top of the table.

After starting their campaign with a 2-0 win over San Marino, Northern Ireland has fallen off the map. Although they are among the lowest-ranked teams in the group, they still won’t be satisfied with their performances. They could’ve done better, especially against teams like Kazakhstan who were ranked lower. In the final match of the campaign, Northern Ireland will be hoping to end on a high note.

Player to Watch

Shea Charles (Northern Ireland)

Shea Charles is the rising prospect from the Northern Ireland team and despite their struggles, has stood out in the most matches. The Manchester City academy product joined Southampton this season and has been a regular name there. Although his on-ball movement has not been great, Charles has been a solid midfielder and has been really good.

Jonas Wind (Denmark)

Although Rasmus Hojlund has been the marquee in Denmark’s squad so far, Jonas Wind has been the real star in attack, scoring 3 goals and providing 4 assists. Wind has carried his club form for Wolfsburg, scoring 8 goals in 11 games.

Match Prediction for Northern Ireland vs Denmark

It has been a strong performance for Denmark so far and they have lived up to all expectations. Despite the fact that they have dominated all of the opponents, they will look to finish the qualification campaign with the same statement of authority. However, without their key players, such as Hojlund and Eriksen, it would be a good test for them.
