"We are the 'underdogs', no doubt, and we will face the best team in the world, and if you look at the statistics, they concede few goals and win many games. But there is always a possibility, even against a team like this."
Denmark returns to the field after the drama touched upon with the Christian Eriksen affair.
To which, on the eve of the match in Copenhagen against Belgium, coach Kasper Hjulmand, dedicates a thought.
"It is really a crazy situation - says Hjulmand -.
The hospital is just behind the stadium, Christian can see the Parken from the window, and he will probably be able to hear the audience. I think he will look at us."
But how did the team react in the days immediately following the Eriksen case? "The players who needed to see their family could do it - replies Hjulmand - Who did I can't tell you, I could see my wife and children very quickly, but it was very important to me. Psychologists? They have been with us since the early evening, both as a group and as an individual. I think it was very important and that it helped us a lot. "
Then back on the match. "We have already faced Belgium - says the Danish coach -. And if we think about the last time, we will try to do something better. We will have the stadium on our side, and we will use this to our advantage. We must try to play the best possible match. ". "Of course it is not easy to stop someone like Lukaku - he adds -. We talked about him, he is a decisive player, and very strong. But they are not Lukaku: Belgium is also very strong as a team."
