With back-to-back comprehensive victories, Israel expected to shock Denmark but they discovered that against oppositions who are really good can strip and take them to the cleaners in no time. Denmark hit Israel five times and gunned them down and which made them the only team during the World Cup Qualifiers in Europe having a record of hundred percent win.
Denmark’s superb run of form and start to World Cup qualifying continued with yet another victory at the weekend. They overcame the Faroe Islands on Saturday to extend their 100% record in Group F and they kept another clean sheet in the process
The Israelis have won four of their last five matches in all competitions while their only loss of qualifying came against Denmark back in March but having scored at least four in their last three games qualifying contests thanks to a 5-2 win over Austria last time out, the away side was confident.
Well, it was a different story as Denmark scored twenty-two goals till now.
Mikkel Damsgaard’s superb playmaking laid the foundations for Denmark’s 5-0 thrashing of Israel in their Group F World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.
The Danes have won all six of their games, scoring 22 goals while conceding none, and top the standings with 18 points. They now boast a seven-point lead over second-place Scotland, with Israel a point further back and four games left to play.
Damsgaard, the 21-year-old Sampdoria midfielder who broke into the national team side after Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest in their opening Euro 2020 match in June, was once again the creative fulcrum, and it was his shot that was parried into the path of Yussuf Poulsen, who scored the opener in the 28th minute.
Captain Simon Kjaer added a second three minutes later and Andreas Skov Olsen also netted before the break. Thomas Delaney then scored in the 58th minute before Andreas Cornelius added a fifth in stoppage time to complete a dominant Danish performance in Copenhagen.
