After heroically winning the first game, Belgium will be playing against a panic-stricken Denmark side without their star player Christian Eriksen.
A harrowing incident overshadowed the defeat for Danes, but Hjulmand and his men will be focused on winning the game against an in-form Belgian side.
Denmark 1-2 Belgium
Denmark 1-2 Belgium
After a tormenting event that surfaced during the game against Finland, Denmark’s coach, players, and the staff were on their knees praying for the survival of their countrymen and teammate.
The game was suspended, but it resumed shortly after the consent from players of both sides. The fans were not happy because it was a moment of distress for them.
However, not long after Eriksen was sent to the hospital, the doctors and his father confirmed that he’s out of danger and there’s nothing to worry about.
Finland and Denmark went into the game with a headstrong approach, and the fans from both nations were roaring Eriksen’s name, which proved that football came second to humanity that day.
Belgium will be aiming for another emphatic victory over the Danes today. After losing Castagne to an injury, it proved to be a blessing in disguise for them.
The substituted player, Thomas Meunier, doubled the lead for the Belgians and helped Lukaku score his second goal of the night with an impressive through ball.
Belgium will take on a Denmark side who might yet be recovering from an injured Christian Eriksen.
Timothy Castagne will be absent from the Belgium squad due to an unfortunate injury. Similarly, Denmark will be without Christian Eriksen as a cardiac arrest hit him. The remainder of the team will stay the same though.
Denmark: Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Maehle; Delaney, Hojbjerg, Jensen; Poulsen, Dolberg, Braithwaite
Belgium: Courtois; Alderweireld, Boyata, Vermaelen; Meunier, Tielemans, Dendoncker, T.Hazard; Mertens, Lukaku, Carrasco
