Denmark vs Northern Ireland prediction

Denmark have really punched above their weight under Kasper Hjulmand’s management, having done well in championship football in recent years. The quality is clear. The likes of Christian Eriksen, Kasper Schmeichel and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have been around for a long time, and have shown their ability both at club and international level.

Young stars such as Mikkel Damsgaard and Rasmus Höglund are now emerging as the future of Danish football. Hojlund, in particular, gets rave reviews for his performances at Atalanta; The 20-year-old has been closely linked to Manchester United.

Andreas Christensen’s performance with Barcelona this season has also been outstanding. The centre-back joined the La Liga giants on a free transfer from Chelsea last season and was one of the best defenders in Spain as he helped Barcelona win the league.

On the other hand, Northern Ireland have the likes of Jonny Evans, Craig Cathcart and Paddy McNair to count on for experience. The Northern Irish have some excellent talents capable of causing opposition defences, and while they will be the underdogs here, they are more than capable of causing some huge problems for the Danes.

We expect Denmark to win.
