Milton Keynes – Former Wolfsburg resident Pernell Harder brought Denmark to second place their first success in the European Football Championship in England. The 29-year-old scored the recovery goal (72) in the 1-0 (0-0) win over Finland in Milton Keynes. After colliding with an opponent, she had to leave the field shortly before the end of the match (86) due to a head injury.
Denmark now have every chance of securing a place in the playoffs ahead of Saturday’s final Group B match against Spain, despite their first loss 4-0 to Germany. For the first time in the tournament with Nadia Nadim at the start, which was controversial due to her role as Qatar’s ambassador, it was clear that the Danes were the better team in front of the 11,615 spectators.
However, great opportunities remained rare. Harder hit the crossbar from substitute Karin Holmgard from close range. This was the 69th goal in 136 international matches for the Danish record. Finland had already lost to Spain at the start (1:4).
