Tops / Flops Denmark-Belgium: the Danes played at 12, Denayer loses points


The Danish euphoria, the sublime entry of De Bruyne and the failure of Denayer… Find the Tops and Flops of this match between Denmark and Belgium (1-2).


Denmark, a surplus of soul

Completely amorphous against the Finns last Saturday after Christian Eriksen's heart disease, the Danes and their state of mind were at the center of questions. Were they going to crack? The answer is no. In front of their Copenhagen home crowd, the locals completely suffocated the Belgians during the first 20 minutes. As transported, they opened the scoring very quickly by taking advantage of a blunder from Denayer. Poulsen crossed his shot perfectly to give the advantage to the breasts (1-0, 2nd). They came back down to Earth in the second half with the entry of Kévin De Bruyne and finally had to bow, which does not detract from their performance. All Danish players could have entered the Tops, but we had to make choices.

Live: Euro: stunning against Denmark, Belgians are in 8th

Kévin De Bruyne, the saving

entry His entry completely overturned this match.

Dominated and without idea, Belgium had to wait for Kévin De Bruyne to finally get to the level of the event.

Roberto Martinez decided to launch his master to play as soon as he returned from the locker room in place of Mertens, not very visible this Thursday in Copenhagen.

In ten minutes, the Manchester City midfielder allowed Thorgan Hazard to equalize after a magnificent feint that sent two defenders into the wind (55th, 1-1).

He then gave a decisive advantage by concluding with a superb strike from the left a collective movement of the Devils (71st, 1-2).

Simon Kjær, true Captain

Hero last Saturday by initiating the first aid gestures to Christian Eriksen, the defender of AC Milan was imperial on Thursday.

Like the rest of his team, he was excellent and intoxicated by the context of this meeting.

Simon Kjær managed his defense perfectly, which the Belgians stumbled constantly in the first half.

When he returned from the locker room, he suffered from the entry of Kévin De Bruyne but continued to deliver a high level performance despite the two goals conceded.


Jason Denayer, an error that makes task

His match was ruined in less than two minutes of play. Jason Denayer, who started in central defense instead of Boyata, is the main culprit in the Danish opener. Not really under pressure, the OL player returned the ball to Hojbjerg, in the axis 25 meters from Courtois' goals. The Tottenham midfielder then served Poulsen who transformed this offering. “

The best defender in Ligue 1,

” according to his agent, has not really proven this statement in Copenhagen. He certainly didn't score any points against Boyata ...

Youri Tielemans, too shy

Like his team, the Leicester player was technically and physically dominated in the first half. Tielemans struggled to exist in midfield where Danish pair Delaney-Hojbjerg brought order. Not necessarily helped by an equally overwhelmed Dendoncker, the former Monegasque did not have the influence we know him and never knew how to organize his team. The Red Devils played sideways and backwards for a long time, surely stunned by the premature opening scoring of the Danes and their euphoria.
