Nations League: Denmark consolidates its third behind Belgium, split between France and Portugal


The second match of group 2 of the Nations League A, that of Belgium, ended Sunday with a large victory for Denmark in Iceland (0-3). Runar Sigurjonsson against his camp (45th), Christian Eriksen (46th) and Robert Skov (61st) thus allowed the Danes to consolidate their third place with 4 points, two lengths from Belgium and three from England. Iceland, who have collected three losses, are still waiting for their first point before hosting the Red Devils on Wednesday. There were no goals in the Poland-Italy (group 1) and France-Portugal (group 3) matches.

In Gdansk, Italy regained the lead of Group 1 by sharing the stake with Poland. Squadra Azzurra dominated the first half but failed to make a difference. Chiesa missed the frame, six meters away, at the far post and alone on an excellent cross from the left of the area of ​​Belotti (11th). Clumsy collectively, Poland had a few situations in attack (a single shot on target in 45 minutes) but never made Donnarumma tremble.

The second half was also dominated by Italy, who always proved unable to finish their actions against a long clumsy Poland in the offensive phase. However, the visitors woke up at the end of the game and Linetty was very close to opening the scoring but Acerbi deflected his shot (88th).

Italy has five points, one more than the Netherlands and Poland. Bosnia-Herzegovina, who drew Zenica against the Netherlands (0-0), is 4th (2 points). Gojko Cimirot (Standard) played the entire meeting with Bonsie.

In group 3, France and Portugal still share the first place with 7 points after their virgin division (0-0). At the break, the Blues uninspired against a well-established defense, and the Portuguese a little more enterprising had not asked the goalkeepers much. Ronaldo, however, missed a double opportunity (24th) and distinguished himself by a missed recovery on a center of Guerreiro (50th). Suddenly, Lloris remained undefeated on the evening of his 117th selection, making him the third most capped player in the history of the Blues behind Lilian Thuram (142) and Thierry Henry (123).

France will face Croatia on Wednesday, who took their first three points by beating Sweden 2-1 in Zagreb. The Scandinavians, beaten three times, are last.
