Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen was able to score for Denmark in the UEFA Nations League this week, but it was not enough after the Danes were beaten 2-1 at the home of Croatia. The new Manchester United player and his Danish teammates are in Group A1 as far as this season’s UEFA Nations League campaign is concerned alongside Croatia, France and Austria.
The Danes slipped to second spot on the Group A1 log after the defeat against the Croatians in Zagreb. They have been replaced by their latest opponents as the top team in the group ahead of the final set of games next week. Croatia moved one point clear of the Danes with one game left for all the four teams. Only Denmark and Croatia are battling for the only spot for the final phase from Group A1.
Croatia will secure the final phase spot if they beat hosts Austria on Sunday or if they draw and Denmark fail to beat France at home on the same day. They can still take the final phase spot if they lose to the Austrians and Denmark fail to beat France.
