Denmark vs France: Les Blues end their Nations League campaign with a loss in the 3rd place

Denmark vs France
UEFA Nations League

France have had a disastrous Nations League campaign by their standards. They went into the fixture to finish things positively.

Denmark meanwhile overachieved in the tournament and hoped to carry the momentum. Things did go as per the hosts’ plan.

Dolberg and Skov Olsen scored in the first half to give their nation a two-goal lead. No further goals were in the remainder of the half. The score remained the same at full time as well.

Post match reaction

France coach, Didier Deschamps: “We lost the battle because this Danish team made a lot of impact and we were less efficient even though we had 25 or 30 minutes where we did good things. We had no success. I think they score on their first chance. On set pieces, situations were repeated: they found themselves three or four times with a Dane alone in the area. No matter the system, it must not happen. We achieved good things three days ago against Austria, Denmark had achieved less in Croatia but the players were warned of what awaited them here. In terms of commitment and duels, they were much more solid and consistent than us.”
