Denmark, the former European champions, clinched their place in the Euro 2024 tournament in Germany with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Slovenia in Copenhagen, marking a remarkable fifth consecutive win for De Rød-Hvide.
The Danish squad entered the evening with a singular mission: to secure a victory and guarantee their spot in UEFA Euro 2024. Driven by this goal, the Danes launched into action with a rapid start, creating numerous scoring opportunities. Among the best chances was Jonas Wind’s header, expertly denied by Jan Oblak, followed by the Slovenian goalkeeper superbly stopping Wolfsburg forward’s volley.
The sustained Danish pressure materialized into a lead just past the midway point of the first half. Andreas Christensen delivered a precise ball into the box, met by Joakim Mæhle at the back post who nodded it in. Fueled by the knowledge that a win would propel them into the upcoming tournament, Denmark responded almost immediately. Erik Janža, with a free-kick near the edge of the box, unleashed a sublime strike, leveling the score as the teams entered halftime.
In the second half, Kasper Hjulmund’s side launched a relentless assault on the Slovenian goal. Yussuf Poulsen, a persistent threat, saw his header go over the bar and a prodded effort tipped around the post by Oblak. The pressure eventually paid off as Jannik Vestergaard’s header found Thomas Delaney, who skillfully poked the ball home.
Poulsen continued to torment the Slovenian defense, with a powerful shot tipped over the bar by Oblak, who kept Slovenia’s hopes alive. Despite the efforts, the Slovenians failed to mount a response, and Denmark held on to secure their spot in Germany next year. Meanwhile, Matjaž Kek’s men now shift their focus to their upcoming match against Kazakhstan on Monday, with the winner securing the group’s final qualification spot.
