Denmark, one of the nice surprises of Euro 2020, continues its good year. The Vikings will be in Qatar at the end of 2022 for the World Cup. They validated their ticket on Tuesday thanks to their victory against Austria. England will have to wait. Portugal will fight to the end with Serbia.
The former player of Genk, Joakim Maehle scored the only goal of the game in the 53rd minute. With two matches from the end of the qualifying phase, the Danes are 7 points ahead of Scotland and can no longer be dislodged from first place in Group F. Denmark, which has won its 8 matches until present, is the second nation qualified on the ground for the World Cup. He joined Germany and Qatar, the organizing country.
England, however, will have to wait a little longer. The Three Lions were held in check at Wembley by Hungary (1-1). Still at the head of Group I, the English keep their fate in their hands. Corn Gareth Southgate had probably not counted on a sharing of his home team. We will have to finish the job in November against Albania and San Marino.

On a penalty, perhaps, but he still launched his Portugal on the road to easy success. Bruno Fernandes, John Straw and again Ronaldo fixed the final score (5-0). But since Serbia won against Azerbaijan (3-1), it retains the lead. For a small point and with one more match.
