Denmark have played two friendlies to warm up for Euro 2020. They drew 1-1 against Germany before a 2-0 win against Bosnia-Herzegovina with Martin Braithwaite and Andreas Cornelius on target.
Denmark Squad & Team News
Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel, Jonas Lössl, Frederik Rønnow
Defenders: Joachim Andersen, Jannik Vestergaard, Simon Kjaer (captain), Joakim Mæhle, Andreas Christensen, Mathias Jørgensen, Jens Stryger Larsen, Nicolai Boilesen
Midfielders: Robert Skov, Thomas Delaney, Christian Eriksen, Christian Nørgaard, Daniel Wass, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Mathias Jensen, Anders Christiansen
Forwards: Martin Braithwaite, Andreas Skov Olsen, Kasper Dolberg, Mikkel Damsgaard, Jonas Wind, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Cornelius
Centre back and captain Simon Kjaer has earned 107 caps. He is likely to partner Andreas Christensen in central defence.
Attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen is a key player after scoring 36 goals in 108 international appearances.
Hjulmand has a number of attacking options including Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg, Yussuf Poulsen and Jonas Wind.
Finland have been in poor form in 2021. They have failed to win in their last six matches, lost their last three and not scored in their last two games.
Markku Kanerva’s side drew both World Cup qualifiers in March. They drew 2-2 against Bosnia-Herzegovina with Teemu Pukki scoring both goals and 1-1 in Ukraine with Pukki equalising through an 89th minute penalty.
The Eagle-owls have lost all three friendlies since. Finland lost 3-2 against Switzerland with Joel Pohjanpalo bagging a brace, 2-0 against Sweden and 1-0 against Estonia.
Finland Squad & Team News
Goalkeepers: Lukáš Hrádecký (vice-captain), Jesse Joronen, Anssi Jaakkola
Defenders: Paulus Arajuuri, Daniel O'Shaughnessy, Joona Toivio, Leo Väisänen, Niko Hämäläinen, Thomas Lam, Nikolai Alho, Jere Uronen, Jukka Raitala, Robert Ivanov
Midfielders: Glen Kamara, Robert Taylor, Robin Lod, Fredrik Jensen, Rasmus Schüller, Pyry Soiri, Tim Sparv (captain), Joni Kauko, Onni Valakari
Forwards: Teemu Pukki, Joel Pohjanpalo, Lassi Lappalainen, Marcus Forss
Finland’s squad is not strong, especially in defence. Midfield is led by Rangers’ Glen Kamara.
Teemu Pukki is a key player up front. The Norwich City striker has scored 30 goals in 91 internationals and needs two more to equal Finland’s all-time top scorer Jari Litmanen.
Denmark are in better form than Finland and have a far stronger squad. Playing at home in Copenhagen, this should be a routine victory for the Danes.
