unfortunately, we seen that the Danish national team can fall alarmingly deep. It made it to Hungary, where especially the first half was a horror to get through. A Danish team without ignition, will and force. A mental collapse and a terrible fall in the level after the beautiful struggle last Thursday in Aarhus, where the hungarians were molesteret of a plush playing of the Danish national team.
could not surprise anyone, it was a completely different Hungarian team who came to andendagsgildet in Odense. The Hungarian defense tackled much harder than in the first showdown in Aarhus last Thursday, and the heroes of the battle, Nikolaj Markussen and Nikolaj Øris, was this time put under a much harder pressure.
set the limitations of the Øris, when he is not allowed to come within tremeteren, when he must finish. Instead, it was a lot of alibiafleveringer on the cross, and the same trench also fell the long Markussen in. The hungarians gave him some beating, and so he was unsure in his decisions. Only in overtalsspillet he met the right choice.
utilized also the majority, and on the whole they had not difficulty to peel a too passive Danish defense from each other. But how can there be so much difference in the Danish national team in so few days. And so even against the same opponent?
not to ask Nikolaj Jacobsen, for he is just as mystified as all of us who believe to have just a little sense on the game. But to laugh would the players not be. In the second half lifted the team out tremendously. Not least because Mads Mensah left off the rein, and he got his teammates with on the game. After the break were the hungarians, again, when it was about to play physical, and because he got better help of his defense, was Jannick Green of a really good rear redoubt.
among the favorites when the WORLD cup begins on Tuesday. It changes the fight against Hungary, but it is worrying that the team still can have such violent outcomes, as we saw in the first half in Odense. I don't think even a Mikkel Hansen could have changed.
he will strengthen the squad, when he is now after familieforøgelsen returns in red and white. We can rejoice in that. However, it is disturbing that so many of the players draws around, with greater or less damage. It must, however, be no excuse for the lack of effort in the first half against Hungary.
in Odense was partially spoiled by the music, which ran, although the game was in progress. It is preposterous, as I hope IHF will not tolerate when it gets earnest at the WORLD cup on Thursday.
