RUSSIA-DANIMARCA 1-4 – 70 ‘Dzyuba – 38’ Damsgaard, 59 ‘Poulsen, 79’ Christensen, 82 ‘Maehle
Schmeichel 6.5: with his feet save on Golovin, from the spot he can not do anything about Dzyuba’s transformation. Before and after, Russia creates very little.
Christensen 7: stands out on high balls despite the Russian giants and makes his physicality felt, he also takes away the satisfaction of scoring a good goal with an impregnable right-foot from distance.
Kjaer 7: he is the main scorer of Dzyuba, he does not leave even an inch to the Russian striker. He is confirmed as the great leader of Denmark, a true captain.
Vestergaard 6.5: he has too many problems when he has to set up, but he redeems himself with defensive interventions.
Wass 6.5: is a thorn in the side on the right wing, the protagonist of an infinite series of descents in offensive projection (dal 61 ‘Stryger Larsen 6: enters to legitimize the advantage and win the pass for the round of 16).
Hojbjerg 7: touches the goal with a powerful blow from distance, he is good at both building the Danish game and destroying the Russian one.
Delaney 6.5: less impactful than his teammate, but equally important: the Borussia Dortmund midfielder is also fundamental in the balance of the team (dall’86 ‘Jensen sv).
Mahle 7: Fernandes often and willingly jumps, the greatest joy comes when he finally closes the accounts: the winger of Atalanta is definitively consecrating.
Braithwaite 6.5: he practically never kicks on goal, but goes away in one on one and always creates superiority (dall’85 ‘Cornelius v).
Poulsen 6.5: the commitment and the desire to fight are certainly not lacking, but to score he needs to thank an opponent: Zobnin’s gift is sensational, he is cold to realize (from 61 ‘Dolberg 6: immediately devours a network, stopping a perfect assist badly).
Damsgaard 7: the Sampdoria lights up Denmark’s dream: his goal is splendid, his play blows up enthusiasm in Copenhagen. And, at 90 ‘, the party can begin (dal 73 ‘Norgaard 6: join the final party of the Danes).
CT Hjulmand 7.5: overcoming a drama and trauma like the one experienced with Eriksen was not easy, he compacts the group and finds the second round despite two defeats. And, now, his Denmark no longer wants to stop, with the push of the Inter Milan from a distance.
