Denmark host Belgium at The Parken Stadium in Copenhagen in their first game since the harrowing events that took place last Saturday as they opened their campaign against Finland. Inter Milan playmaker Christian Eriksen aggonisingly had a cardiac arrest mid-game leaving millions worldwide shocked. Luckily as of now, Eriksen has said he is doing well and he is on the road to recovery.

Kasper Hjulmand's men eventually lost the game 1-0 after the second half continued shortly after everything happened.

Meanwhile, The Belgians were 3-0 winners against a weak Russia side. Romelu Lukaku was in the headlines again as he scored a goal in either half. 

  • Team news

Eriksen's spot will most likely be filled by Brentford's Mathias Jensen.

As for Belgium, they're without Timothy Castagne for the rest of the tournament after he suffered a fracture to his face. The Leicester City wing-back will undergo surgery. 

This game might be too early for Kevin De Bruyne - who ironically is suffering from an almost identical injury to Castagne.

Axel Witsel has also recovered from an achilles problem to become available for the game against the Danes.

Denmark - 4-3-3:

Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Chritensen, Maehle; Delaney, Hojberg, Jensen; Poulsen, Dolberg, Braithwaite.

  • Ones to watch

 Andreas Christensen - Denmark 

After winning the Champions League with ChelseaAndreas Christensen came into the Euros on a high. He's quickly becoming one of the top defenders in Europe and cementing his place in Tomas Tuchel's backline. 

It could be hard for Lukaku and co to dominate the front line if Christensen is on his game at the heart of the defence along side Simon Kjaer.

Romelu Lukaku - Belgium

It was quite hard not to mention him... the Inter Milan striker got off to a perfect start in this summers campaign scoring a brace against Russia. Whilst they were both on a plate for him, all good strikers take their chances well and the 28-year-old is one of the finest at poaching in the world.

If hes at his best against the Danes, he could well go to the top of the goalscoring charts for this summers finals, saying this - he was the front runner to take home the golden boot before the tournament started.

He's backed to cause more trouble with his pace and power, and the Denmark defenders will be in for a long night if he's up for it. 

  • Previous meetings

The two met twice in the Nations League back in 2020, Belgium won in Copenhagen 2-0, then again in Brussels 4-2.
