European Football Championship: Denmark fears Eriksen and Delaney will play

The Danes can live with their role as underdogs ahead of the European Championship round of 16 match against Germany. Even the impending loss of two injured players cannot dampen their confidence.

The Danish national football team is worried about the availability of leading player Christian Eriksen ahead of the European Championship round of 16 match against Germany on Saturday (9 p.m./ZDF and MagentaTV) in Dortmund.

As national coach Kasper Hjulmand confirmed, the Manchester United midfielder and record international player of the 2021 European Championship semi-finalist is complaining of stomach and intestinal problems and therefore skipped training this morning. “He is feeling better again. We expect him to be able to play tomorrow,” said Hjulmand.

Thomas Delaney, who suffers from similar problems to Eriksen, does not seem to be on the road to recovery yet. The Danish coach left it open whether the former Bremen and Dortmund professional can replace the suspended midfielder Morten Hjulmand as planned: “We have a plan B for every player.”

Regardless of the recovery of the two professionals, football coach Hjulmand sees his team as underdogs, but believes they have a chance. “Germany is one of the favorites. But we also have a great team. They have to be very good to beat us,” he said. Defender Jannik Vestergaard (Leicester City) expressed a similar view: “The Germans have world-class players in their ranks. We will try to be annoying and want to play to our strengths.”
